This is a very one sided answer.  If you spend a lot of time with birds they will incorporate you into the flock.  I have a very bonded pair who love to include me in almost all their activities.  I don't mess with them when they are nesting other then when they want to come out and interact.  I spend enough time with them to know when it is appropriate to offer a finger/shoulder for them to spend a little time.  They expect fresh foods and will let me feed them or place them at a feeding location.  If your parrot has to spend a lot of time alone this may not be possible and a mate would most likely take your place but not in all cases.  Whether domestic or wild, animals do not follow rules and there is not one answer for any animal, to any situation.
