The Compassionate Heart of a Caregiver

By Debbie Humphrey

It takes a very special individual to be a caregiver. Their heart is golden and bursting with compassion for others. Their focus is intent on providing excellent care for their clients, with a goal of keeping them happy and comfortable.Senior woman with her caregiver. Happy and smiling.

A caregiver may be asked to do any number of things to help out, whether it is transportation assistance, meal preparation, light housework, or companionship for seniors who are lonely and isolated. No matter what the responsibilities, a caregiver is obliged to assist in almost any capacity.

At Home Helpers, clients are matched with a caregiver that is best-suited to fulfill their specific needs, following an in-home consultation with the experts in non-medical home care. Let Home Helpers help you with:

  • Transportation Assistance – Caregivers will gladly drive clients to appointments with doctors, attorneys, hair stylists/barbers, senior citizen events and so much more.
  • Meal Preparation – Caregivers prepare tasty, healthy meals and snacks to keep clients properly nourished and satisfied.
  • Light Housework – Caregivers will perform daily chores around their client’s home when it becomes too much for them to handle themselves, or when they are no longer able to do so. This may include laundry/ironing; making beds, doing dishes, and removing trash, just to name a few.
  • Companionship – Caregivers are beautiful souls who become friends with their clients. They are willing to listen to stories seniors tell over and over again. They engage their clients in conversation, keep them social and active, share laughs, and shed tears, because that’s the nature of truly caring.

The compassionate heart of a caregiver is one of beauty!
