In brief: Assistance
Basically they help by feeding, bathing clothing and moving a patient depending on how much help they need.
Some just need with with bathing and can dress themselves, others need more help. Most all help to make sure they take their medication properly. They can also be alert to health problems that pop up and help to arrange a doctor visit.
