I am a caregiver of my grandpa. There's a home nurse that visits him once a week to bathe him and check his vitals and chats with him. My grandpa loves her company she is about 10 years younger than he is and he has a crush on her. They are both widows. Recently, my mom who works with my grandpa's nurse said that she said that whenever she comes visits my grandpa that she always sees me wearing an apron, which is true. I always wear an apron because I cook, prepare meals, and clean up. So I dress very casual for my "position" because what I do is physical labor and I need to be comfortable in grandpa's house. It is not like I am sitting there like a princess or working in an office dealing with customers. My mom told me that I should change my clothes when his nurse arrives because how I dress embarasses her and in her home health company people gossip. My mom is not my grandpa's caregiver, she is only his POA.
I do not know how to confront my grandpa's nurse about what she said. I thought she was a very positive person and I like her alot because she reminds me of my grandma (who passed away last year). It seems like people find it easier to gossip and complain about others than to confront them. If the nurse would just ask me herself why I wear an apron all the time she comes and visits, I would have told her why. Any suggestions?
