Caregiver Job Description

A caregiver provides direct care to patients and assists with their basic tasks and needs. They may also be referred to as caretakers.

This can include:

  • Bathing
  • Dressing
  • Prepping meals
  • Assisting with eating
  • Running errands
  • Helping with household chores

Caregivers may work in long-term care facilities, assisted living facilities, or even patients’ homes. While they don’t perform medical tasks, they are an integral part of a patient’s team.  Caregivers help support their patients so they can have a better quality of life and a sense of normalcy.

In some states, you must be licensed and certified in order to be employed as Caregiver.  Each state has slightly different training requirements, and even if your state does not require certification, completion of a training course is recommended.
