So...how do I do this? I’m a caregiver for the elderly, so my job is very hands on. Because of that, I want my work to know sooner than later just in case I need some sort of adjustment in my work, or if there’s something a client needs that I can’t do (such as lifting or transferring).
The office is about an hour away from where I work, so it seems really far to go just tell them. Is a phone call sufficient? How do I begin that conversation? My manager occasionally stops by client’s homes while I’m on shift to pick up papers or check in, so I see her sometimes. Should I wait and tell her then? Not exactly sure how to break the news, so any advice or stories are helpful!
