A caregiver takes care of another person as they recover from a health condition or as they cope with the difficulties of aging. Caregivers can be family members of loved ones who need assistance or paid professionals. If you're looking for a paid professional to take care of your loved one, Ballinger Home Health & Hospice is here to help. We have a compassionate team of well-trained registered nurses and caretakers who can provide care for short-term needs and long-term (lifetime) support.
What Do Caregivers Do?
A caregiver or caretaker offers various services to support the person in need. The caregiver may help with bathing and hygiene assistance, meal preparation and feeding, and medications (reminders, preparation, and administration). A caregiver may offer light housekeeping, dementia care, shopping and errands, companionship, incontinence management, and transportation. At Ballinger Home Health & Hospice, we provide the following caregiver services:
• Monitor your loved one’s medical condition
• Purchase, organize, and administer medications
• Communicate with your healthcare professional
