Boundaries for family members and friends
If you are a PCA, you must be careful to guard the person’s privacy. You must have a professional manner while carrying out PCA services. If you are a family member or friend and the PCA this could be more difficult and challenging.
For example, parents often tell stories about their children: “When Johnny was two, he would not go to bed without his stuffed blue dog.”
This story may or may not cause Johnny (who is now 30) a bit of embarrassment, but his parents love to tell it. If you were a PCA to Johnny when he was two, you would not be able to share that tale if putting him to bed was a task you performed. Telling the story would be a violation of Johnny’s privacy.
