I currently work 20 hrs, 2 days a week on behalf of dacorum

This answer was rated:

Hi there... I currently work 20 hrs, 2 days a week on behalf of dacorum borough councils adult social care division, for a young adult in the community... as a result of the current coronovirus pandemic, the adult and I have disagreed about how we should deal with the current situation during our time together.. as a result of that, and the fact that the young adult refuses not only to believe there is even a problem at all, but refuses to follow govt advice/guidelines, refuses to stay in doors, and insists to wish to go out and about all day, has slashed my hours so to give another carer the hours, who will happily take the adult out against the advice people have been given... some advice on how to proceed with this would be greatly appreciated.. thankyou
