A caregiver is a person who provides care for another individual who is unable to care for themselves due to illness, disability, or old age. This can include providing physical care, such as helping with activities of daily living like bathing and dressing, as well as providing emotional support and assistance with medical needs. Caregivers can be professional caregivers who are trained and paid to provide care, or they can be family members or friends who provide care on a voluntary basis.
