A non-medical Caregiver is a person who assists senior citizens, when necessary, in the performance of the activities of daily living. It is not a medically skilled position, as the job consists primarily of what is considered custodial duties. Caregivers can help relieve burdens and support individuals in need. They may help for a long time or just a short time, but their care is always important. Caregiver requirements vary from state to state, so there is no set education level or certification required for all caregivers.
