Perform any clinical tasks - NO
I do not explain treatment procedures or do examinations. No nursing care. I do not administer medication, take pulses, temperatures, blood pressures or blood sugar levels. Absolutely no physical transfers. I am duty-bound to act within my scope of responsibilities as a Real Estate Licencee and work within the boundaries of my authority.
Make decisions for you – NO
Instead I am here to help you understand information, issues, and/or choices. You will need to weigh the options. I want to ensure that decisions are based on your own preferences.
Intrude in family affairs - NO
Please take note, I apply a 5-step system for such incidences if they shall arise. I will first listen when someone is concerned or upset. Once I have listened to what they have to say, I may go a step further and ask questions. Although I am clear with setting healthy boundaries. I am also sophisticated enough to know my personal limits. Further, I will not be a bystander of abuse. I will be obliged to report maltreatment to the BC Elder Advocacy or the Public Guardian and Trustee Department.
Project my own beliefs onto you - NO
I am in no position to discern whether yours vs my beliefs are right, to include, culture, history, religion, philosophy, aspirations or past experiences.
