Caregiving and my job.
I wanted to get some input on this. I recently found out my old boss of many years is moving to another position and I am getting a new boss.. someone hired from outside the company. I have an introductory meeting with him tomorrow.
Right now, caregiving for my elderly parents consumes my life outside my job. What are the opinions about mentioning this to my new boss? My old boss knows some about it but probably not to the extent that is taking over my life.
One reason I might mention is that I can't handle any changes .. like traveling or relocating or adding any more stress to my life... but I don't want to let it effect my current job either. I have taken most all my vacation time tho for dr. appts, rehab, hospital stays...etc.
I'm sure he will want to know what my life entails right now.. so it will be hard not to at least mention it. I want to be honest but don't want to jeopardize my job.
