My therapist and CICOA worker and I are in agreement that the current CNA, the one who just got here, is not a good match for long-term care for me. Despite liking her, there are very poor life decisions that are being made that will affect my household. While I will not pass judgment on some of the participants in her life story, I do feel it necessary to separate myself from her and the company that hired her, and the CNA before her.
I have left out the very sensitive (sorted and disturbing) details given to me directly by the CNA herself because I worry about offending some. I want to handle the delicate situation … delicately.
It’s too bad the choices this 35 yr old has made and is actively making. It’s sad.
So, instead of immediately firing her I will allow her to come temporarily, that is until the new company is hired. I see no reason to have the same company send yet another CNA when they seem to only hire the troubled ones….. This takes the cake though…… I will get a new CNA when the new company arrives in a week or so.
I need assistance but I don’t need drama. Also, I’m learning to better set boundaries with the CNA’s as well as break free from the idea that I have to take what I’m given.
