We are social workers. Our whole profession is based on very specific beliefs about the need to respect each individual.” “We have a caregiver’s code of conduct that implements our mission of responding to the individual needs of our clients by providing aides who will respect a client’s privacy, for example, by leaving the room when a guest arrives,” Stefanich said. “It is this type of behavior that is very important in making the clients feel they are being taken care of by a thoughtful person.”
