Caregivers provide help to people in need whether they are an adult, parent or spouse or a child with medical needs - some caregivers are family members and others are paid. Caregivers might shop for food, cook, clean the house, pay bills, give medicine, help the person get dressed or bathed, and provide support. Caregiving can be very stressful. The caregivers are "on call" 24 hours a day and often caring for someone with long-term illness and care needs.
