Hi, I am new to this site, as of today. I am a in home caregiver to the elderly. I have been doing this since my father's death in 2001. I am exhausted, You give so much of yourself, and sometimes it seems a thankless job. I have taken care of many people, men and woman, but this time, I have a man, he is 78 and there is absolutely no pleasing this man. I am an easy going person, calm, very quiet and take care of his every need. I hate to go into the store with him, he embarrasses me with his rudeness, he is brutal. He is constantly belittling me,
about my size, he doesn't care for anyone over the size 6. I was hired as a caregiver, but I am the cook, laundress, housekeeper, I do the ironing, the garbage, the yard care, I don't know what to do. I need this job, but I am tired, so tired, and I feel like just for once, I would love someone to take care of me, if only for a day.. I don't know what to do. I cannot keep being treated this way, he is sharp , and has his mind, no one puts anything over on him, he is just old, and has a bad back, and knee's.
PLease anyone can you give me some help. I am ready to give up all together.
Thankyou for reading, and thanks for letting me join your site.
