Help! Caring for elderly relative but trying to maintain career.


Have tried discussing the problem but they continue coming into my place of work. Will lose business as I cannot do my job.

You have nothing on ur profile about your LO. Is there Dementia involved? Man or woman? You may need to sit down in front of them and look them in the eye. You say, I don't want to hurt your feelings but for this living arrangement to work you cannot visit me at work. Calls should be for emergencies only. I have to work and I am running a business. I am very busy. Your visits keep me from doing my job and attending to my clients. I will lose clients thus lose my business.

Ur relative may be lonely. Is there a Senior Center they can attend to during the day? Maybe a Daycare. If low income Medicaid may help pay for this.

Could you give an example of what is happening so that we can offer suggestions that are appropriate to your problem.  Does the elderly relative live in an apt in the same building as your place of work?  Do you own the business or are you an employee?

Hi,
I own the business. The family member is living nearby and I care for them. I do not want to hurt their feelings but their behaviour is completely inappropriate. I am unable to do my job. I’m close to locking the door !!
