I am only a HHA right now, and I love my job and my client. But when I am there I sometimes feel I am on pins and needles hoping that I don't do anything that would upset my client, and then loose the job.
This weekend my client seemed a little bit different towards me and I have worried myself sick hoping that I did not do something to upset them. I am praying they just had a hard day like we all do and it was nothing about me personally.
Is this a common worry for those of us who work in home/private care?. Don't get me wrong I think it is wonderful that the clients have a say in who takes care of them, and who they feel comfortable with. but it makes me feel like if I make one wrong move they will let me go, and I am one of those people that want so much to please everyone, and I have a little hard time getting thick skin, and the mind set you are not going to please and get along with everyone.
