Primary Care Givers
What is the role of Primary Care Givers?
Family members and/or friends who provide care for the patient in conjunction with the professional team are termed "care givers." Sharing the care of a loved one can be hard work but certainly has its rewards. These people:
- Give medications
- Help the patient stay as mobile and active as possible
- Listen and respond to the patients needs
- Take certain steps in specific situations
- Advocate for the patient when needed
