I don;t know the answer so I will ask. I got a cal from the nursing agency today. Someone will be here in three days. I don't think I am comfortable with someone watching me for hours. Do they need to be in the same room with me?

Watching you? For hours? Usually there are things they do while they are there. It depends of course on each individual. The first few visits are weird but the place that I use you have a base number you can call and ask them any questions you have.

@sharon6345 .......They usually just set and chat with me, rather like a social worker, when the other stuff is done.

When this person gets there just go about your day like you normally would.I have a friend that is like a caretaker she has clients she goes to daily and does certain things for them like give them a shower clean their placeshe has to be with them a certain amount of time daily some of her clients she takes grocery shopping or to octor appointments and gets paid for it.

I wouldn't think she has to be in the room with you all the time.

I hope not because I want my privacy.

I doubt very much that the nurse will sit and watch you! They are trained to be good companions, too. Tell her/him what you need them to help you with and if that doesn't fill out all the time perhaps they'll be permitted to leave. If they have to stay a certain length of time, get out a deck of cards!
