Being a CAREGiver
Have you ever picked up a prescription for a senior or taken them to a doctor's appointment? Have you ever helped an older adult around the house or paying bills? Do you provide emotional support for an older adult? Or do you provide even more care? If you've answered yes to any of these questions, then you are a caregiver.
Every day in the United Kingdom, there are approximately 8 million individuals providing care for a senior loved one. In a nutshell, caregiving is anything you do that enhances the quality of life for seniors and helps keep them independent. Caregiving as a career encompasses many of these activities and more including:
- Planning and preparing meals
- Light housekeeping
- Medication reminders
- Running errands
- Engaging in activities like games, memory books, and light exercise
Most importantly, professional caregiving allows you to build on the skills you already have to develop a fulfilling, rewarding career helping seniors live rich, independent lives.

My mother-in-law came to live with us at Christmas. We needed help for her - to provide companionship and outings. She has dementia (early!) but is not very mobile and needs assistance. I found out about Home Instead Senior Care by accident and from the first phone call and meeting they have been amazing. Empathetic, helpful and provided carer/help that is so well suited to mother-in-law. We are still shocked (in a good way) I can't say enough good things about them. It has totally transformed her day to day life.M H (Daughter-in-law of Client)
