Last week Brianna Albers shared her latest column in a post relating to considering caregivers as family. Halsey’s recent column also deals with the close relationships sometimes formed with caregivers. At Christmas a former caregiver surprised her with a visit. Although I’ve kept in touch with a few select caregivers I can’t say I’ve formed a bond with any as close as Halsey and Brianna have with theirs. Despite having some of my caregivers for over 10 years I still don’t consider them close friends. It’s not as if I don’t care about their lives, or they don’t care about mine. It’s more that we have our own lives a part from the job. In all honesty I’m reluctant to form close friendships with caregivers for various reasons. One of which being I don’t want them to feel obligated to be my friend. Do you form close bonds with caregivers?
