Care recipient (cr) is accusative towards the caregiver (cg) who is defensive

Try: When feeling defensive with the cr remind yourself that you are the caregiver and make sure you are calm before you respond make sure you are not bringing any outside emotions into your response to the cr once you have gathered your thoughts sit down with the cr and discuss the situation in a kind and direct manner work together to come up with a mutually beneficial solution for example the cr feels that the cg is not available when needed the cg agrees to adjust his or her schedule to accommodate the cr
