Access to caregiver for my mother - she has never check her messages……and Mom is in and out with dementia and doesn't always check either her mobile phone or landline. Additionally, if messages are left, CGiver doesn't check messages so doctor's calls are missed along with family and friends (and yes, fortunately cold calls!).
CGiver's number is the primary number left for all doctor's offices to contact and home health care.
I live in CA, they are in TX. They believe that I'm trying to control the situation (please see my profile for more info). I suggested that CGiver remove the message that says "leave a message" from her phone and tell person to call her son's number who also helps care for my mother - OR leave my number and I'll communicate info (not ideal…..)
Q: should we consider getting rid of the landline to avoid confusion and have family and friends call Mom on her cell phone and all others on CGiver's line IF they can resolve the issue?
Any other suggestions?
No, can't get another CGiver. She's part of the family for over 10 yrs and has my Mom's POA. Too long of a story…..
