What Do Caregivers Do?

Responsibilities, Expectations & Pay Rates

Caregivers provide non-medical care to the elderly, ill or disabled, in order for them live comfortably at home and maintain their independence. Caregiving can be very fulfilling and it’s an opportunity not only to give back but also make a difference by improving the quality of life of others through assistance with daily tasks like bathing, dressing (or undressing), and preparing meals on occasion when necessary.



Caregiving is a challenging job, but it's also rewarding when you see your loved one thrive as they gain independence. Caregivers need to provide companionship both in and out of the home with assistance such as:

  • Housekeeping
  • Appointment Escorts
  • Grocery Shopping
  • Sweeping
  • Pharmacy Pickup
  • Bathroom Assistance
  • Live In Care
  • Dry-Cleaning Pick Up
  • Bathroom Clean Up
  • 24 Hour Care
  • Laundry
  • Vacuum
  • Meal Prep
  • Dish Washing
  • Mop, Dust
  • Bed Making
  • Kitchen Clean Up
  • Errands

These duties can be performed in the form of full time, part time, or even 24/7 Live In caregiver positions with Instant Care.



Some of the most common reasons someone might need a caregiver is if they have Alzheimer’s disease or dementia, ALS, MS, cancer, or have a disability. We provide several resources as well as additional training for you to learn more about each of these conditions in order to be able to grow your career with Instant Care.
