Caregiver #1 has been with us the longest but does not like Caregiver #2. I think she is jealous of the fact that Mom likes Caregiver #2. There has been more than one occasion that I am put in the middle of their "cat-fighting" and I have told both of them I don't care how they feel about one another; the only thing I care about is Mom and that she is safe and happy. I am not in high school anymore! Anyone else have any other advice for me?
What brought this latest "fight" on is the fact that I changed the schedule 2 months ago in order to give each caregiver more time off during the week (each one got 2 full days off) but Caregiver #1 didn't like the schedule so I switched it back. Caregiver #1 called Caregiver #2 today and asked if I had discussed it with her. She said "of course she did". Caregiver #1 didn't hang up the phone and was screaming about Caregiver #2's comments. Granted, I wasn't there and didn't hear the conversation.
