There are many responsibilities and duties of a caregiver. One of those responsibilities is taking care of an individual and his or her family who require specialized assistance due to debilitating illness or injury. In this article, we will look at how to start a home care business in Oregon.

There are many ways to provide services, but the most common mode of providing such services is to render personal care such as, but not limited to, medical care, emotional support, and care giving or companionship services, in the form of companionship services or in the form of professional health care. A caregiver shall also undertake or facilitate personal hygiene, grooming, transportation and feeding of an elderly or disabled individual. The services provided by a caregiver shall not unreasonably interfere with the enjoyment of life or lessen the quality of life of a person who requires such services. The services provided by a caregiver do not include the provision of food, medical treatment or any service that is provided by a licensed physician, mental health professional, or dentist.

The business can be started in any locality, provided that it meets the local requirements and regulations. A home daycare service in Oregon can be set up either privately or publicly funded. The latter depends on the income of the caregiver and the number of people who need to be served. As long as home care service providers comply with the state regulations concerning licensing and certification, then it would not be difficult for people to locate them.

On the part of the client or recipient, the services provided by a caregiver should be valued. The family or individual should be able to easily identify the caregiver and he or she shall be easy to reach. The caregiver shall be properly trained and certified before he or she will be allowed to provide the services provided. The services provided by the caregiver should be the responsibility of the client or recipient. The services provided by a caregiver shall include but not limited to the following: assistance with everyday activities like bathing, dressing, walking, using the toilet, transferring from one room to another, feeding, and more.

As for business, a caregiver can engage in this type of business at home. This type of business is referred to as non-medical home care. It means that the caregiver can perform the same services that he or she does in a medical or assisted living facility, except that they do not need to have a medical license or be registered as a medical doctor or nurse.

Those who are interested in becoming a caregiver, aside from having compassion and kindness, should have excellent communication skills and great interpersonal skills. A person who has these skills will be able to provide the much needed assistance to the client or the needy person. It is also important that the caregiver is licensed and bonded. He or she must make sure that the medications being provided are safe and legal. Other than that, he or she should have enough experience in providing non-medical emergency assistance.
