My mom is getting Mom's Meals, they are refrigerated home delivered meals that come out of Iowa. UPS delivers a styrofoam lined cardboard box containing 10 meals every other Wednesday. Her Medicaid Waiver pays for the meals.
My mom absolutely hates these meals and wants to throw them all in the garbage. She's had 4 or 5 deliveries now and there is nothing in any of them she likes. I tried contacting her caseworker but she's not returning my calls or responding to my emails all week this past week.
Mostly I was just curious if anyone else has any experience with them and if anyone thought they were good or not.
She likes most anything I cook and she'll eat fairly well. I've made homemade potato soup, meatloaf, beef roast, ham etc and she eats all of it. Frozen dinners she'll eat all day long, she'll eat almost any hamburger helper and she loves my homemade pizza. One reason I hate to send her to a nursing home is because she eats well at home and she may not eat nursing home food.
I was told by her caseworker I was not to eat any of her meals, so what she doesn't want, I just let her toss in the garbage. Having separate food for her like that don't work because when I have to make a grilled cheese, bowl of soup or hamburger helper for myself, that's what she'll want.
