My 23 year old daughter works as a CNA on the same floor of the LTC facility that I am charge nurse on. She's a wonderful CNA and gets along well with the residents and other employees. The problem is that there is a 39 year old MS patient on our floor... disease is advanced to where he cannot walk or feed himself. He can still talk and has limited use on his hands. He is a truly special person...He has fallen in love with my daughter, and has expressed his wish to buy her an engagement ring. My daughter feels the same way about him. She doesn't let on to anyone else about this situation because she doesn't want to lose her job. I am at a loss as to what to do about it. She suggested that I ask all of you out there what you all think. I have talked to her about the future and how hard it will be. I keep telling her there is a fine line between love and pity. Any input would be helpful.
