What is a non-medical caregiver?
Non-medical caregivers provide personal care, companionship and/or homemaking duties—all with the goal of helping people remain independent and stay in their own homes as long as possible.
Rules may vary by state, but non-medical caregivers are generally employed by home care agencies and provide one-on-one care in clients’ homes.
