Private Care in Public Residences
What has your experience been starting as a new private caregiver in a gov't run public seniors residence? Were you met with resistance or open arms? I find working in a public residence I was met with a brick wall of resistance at first but as time went on and I demonstrated that I could provide additional assistance they really warmed up and and were so happy to see me arrive each visit. I am not going to lie, it was difficult at first and I felt like an intruder. Slowly the staff started to ask questions about how I started my business and asked how they could too! So really what was going on was not that they were against me, but just the opposite-they simply did not understand how the private senior care sector works. Fear of the unknown I guess. Has anyone else had a similar experience?
