New work arrangements are ruining relationships I spent 20 years building up
DEAR DEIDRE: FOR more than 20 years I’ve worked with my employer and always had a great relationship with them – until they got a new carer.
I’m a woman of 52 and have cleaned for this couple every week for years.
In recent months, at their children’s request, I also started to care for them as they got older.
It all went well until the wife fell and broke her leg.
The family called in a private company to work with me.
But this carer undermines me all the time, saying I’ve been doing things wrong.

DEIDRE SAYS: This new carer sounds jealous of the relationship you have with the elderly couple.
You can make a formal complaint to the company about her.
And my support pack on Standing Up For Yourself will help you face up to her bullying behaviour.
If you are still unhappy, ask yourself if you really want to work in such demeaning conditions.
You had 20 happy years, have plenty of skills and experience.
You could find a role without this upset.
