At Griswold, Caregivers provide non-medical care to the elderly, ill, disabled or injured so they can live comfortably and independently at home. They provide companion care, personal care, homemaking services, and support for those with conditions, illnesses, and injuries, among other services.

Since no two people are the same, no two caregiving jobs are the same, either. That means that most Caregivers provide different care plans to different clients, resulting in slightly different experiences. The fact that no two days are the same is one thing that many Caregivers enjoy. Below you’ll find more information about what you can expect to be doing when you decide on this career path.

Caregiver Duties

The responsibilities of a Caregiver can include providing companionship both in and out of the home, assisting with personal care tasks like dressing, hygiene, and toileting, and helping clients move around, and light housekeeping duties like cleaning, plant care, and meal prep.

Caregiver Specialties

Some clients need a Caregiver to support them with their conditions, illnesses or injuries. Care recipients may have Alzheimer’s disease or dementia, ALS, MS, cancer, or disabilities that require extra help. We can provide resources and access to training for you to learn more about these conditions, and how you can support clients who suffer from them.
