A live-in caregiver is generally someone who lives and works in a patient's home to administer necessary care. The duties will vary depending on the patient’s needs. The caregiver may cook meals and make sure that medication is taken. Depending on the patient’s abilities, the caregiver may be required to feed, dress, and bathe the client. The caregiver will also carry out household duties, such as maintaining a clean environment, doing laundry, and washing dishes. Minimum physical requirements may be necessary, as the caregiver will carry out household tasks and may have to help lift the patient.
