When seniors have communication issues, a caregiver can help them effectively make their needs known to doctors and other medical care staff. Caregivers also work in tandem with the medical team to ensure seniors get the care they require. This may include help with meal preparation, exercise regimens, sleep protocols, medication management, and cognitive exercises.
