Basic duties for caregivers working in the home revolve around providing care one-on-one for a client. In-home senior care is an alternative to nursing home or assisted living care and often seniors respond best to it, as it allows them to get care in familiar surroundings and the comfort of home.
Duties for caring for an elderly client are highly dependent on their special needs - no two caregiving jobs are alike.

- Following the care plan as directed
- Assisting with bathing and grooming
- Basic food preparation
- Medication reminders
