Senior caregivers provide for both emotional care along with physical caregiving and this can become one of the biggest challenges of caregiving. Understanding the seniors medical conditions and care needs are part of a professional caregiver’s job duties. But emotional caregiving comes with the job duties, too, and can vary widely for each senior.
Seniors will experience the loss of their friends and family members to death the longer they live. Caring for depression and grieving are part of caring for seniors.
