A typical day usually includes assisting your loved one with her morning routine (taking a shower, getting dressed, making breakfast, brushing teeth), doing some light housekeeping, companionship, preparing lunch and dinner, and making sure she is safe and comfortable before bed. A live-in caregiver gives peace of mind to families that someone is always in the home in case of emergency.
