I have been with a lovely family and their father for over 7 months now, and the other caregiver did not work out.
There was another caregiver that the dad was adamant to call back. She now works there, and is not a caregiver or in the field, she is working for this family because they are special. She told me that the father fell madly in love with her and that is why she left. Why in the world would she come back.
To me, if the family really knew everything she just told me, that would be just wrong, and I do not know anything other than she told me he wants to kiss her all the time. This seems really almost as a sort of abuse or tease to a 88 year old man, who is just with hip issues.
What is my role professionally, I have tried to hint to the daughter that her dad has stated several times, where is (caregiver), and stated he would rather have her everyday. I however have over 17 years of experience, and the family loves me because I am a true compassionate caregiver, and to me this is wrong in a teasing, abusive way.
I have not told the family everything, but the daughter clearly knows about the kissing, but she does not know about why she left after the wife died.
Now she controls the shots, and my job seems just like, I do my best when I am there, but she is sure to kick me out when she wants to come upstairs.
