Common Characteristics of a Caregiver

Why do you do it?

You have many reasons for providing home care. The most frequent reason is love for your friend or family member and a desire to provide care in familiar surroundings.  It could be that home care is your only option, because outside care, even if it’s available, is often too expensive.  You might also be motivated by a sense of obligation, or concern that no one else can provide the same quality care.
