The Care recipient (cr) touches the caregiver (cg) all the time and it makes the cg feel uncomfortable

Try: # establish comfortable boundaries with the cr # one hand shake hug when the cg arrives one when the cg leaves # keep at arms length when talking sitting and assisting with tasks # back away when the cg feels uncomfortable and rremind the cr about appropriate personal space # pleasantly remind cr when touching patting becomes too frequent # make arrangements for another cg to take over if necessary # be careful when in tight spaces with the cr such as the bathroom or a closet # discuss the cg’s boundaries when going over the daily weekly schedule with the cr
