Assistance with Morning Routine: Caregivers help seniors get out of bed. They often help with dressing, grooming, and personal care tasks. This assistance ensures the senior starts the day comfortably and confidently.
Meal Preparation: Breakfast preparation is a part of the caregiver's responsibility. They might adjust the menu to accommodate dietary needs or tastes. This makes sure the senior has a wholesome start to the day.
