Paid caregivers as well as those in health care and social services are often in a unique position. Consumers often want to treat them like family or friends; employers want them to work efficiently and not form personal ties. They sometimes feel caught in the middle. They have to balance the differing expectations of their employers, their clients and their own personal needs while getting their jobs done to everyone’s satisfaction.
