I work in a rehab facility and care for up to 15 residents at a time. I treat them all with the same amount of attention as deemed appropriate but have had situations where the resident expresses that they are absolutely in love with me and have even tried to give me expensive gifts to prove it. I did not accept the gifts of course but they are persistant in expressing said love. what should I do to discourage this behavior without sending them into a deep depression or making them feel embarrassed or uncared about. I don't want them to become hateful towards me but that is the reaction that I feel will come and that would hinder my ability to provide quality care for them in this care facility.
