Life as a Caregiver

Every caregiver's day is different, but there are some commonalities most caregivers experience when caring for seniors. 

Morning Routine

Everyone needs a morning routine to get the day started on the right foot! Some caregivers might start the day by running errands such as going to the grocery store and picking up prescriptions for their clients. Others might follow their clients' routine by enjoying breakfast and a walk around the neighborhood. Caregivers may help their clients with bathing and dressing for the day.

Afternoon Routine

The afternoon calls for a nice healthy lunch! A caregiver may spend the afternoon preparing a delicious meal while keeping their client's dietary restrictions in mind. The afternoon may also include light housekeeping such as laundry, vacuuming, and dusting. Some caregivers might also take their clients out of the house to enjoy the outdoors and local activities and events. 

Evening Routine

Caregivers can also assist their clients with their nighttime routine as they prepare for bed. As the night nears, caregivers may use this time to engage their clients in activities such as puzzles or brain teasers. It's also an excellent time to prepare a final meal and maybe make plans for the following day.
