Meals on Wheels didn't knock loudly enough on Monday, March 5th. My mother's home health aide was vacuuming my mother's bedroom and she was in there, too. (It does say in the driver's notes to try calling if she doesn't answer the door, but he didn't.) Someone called my mother later and said he would bring her food on Friday. He did and she wrote on each one the date - 3/9. When I went to my mother's house today (Thursday March 15th), I looked in her freezer and saw no "new" food that was supposed to have been delivered on Monday, March 12th for this week. When I looked at my mother's tablet where she keeps careful notes, I saw that she had written on Monday that Meals on Wheels had not come. Rather than scold her for not informing me sooner, I called the company that delivers the food. They told me that she signed for it and they had her initials!! There were only two possible explanations that I could think of off the top of my head. One, that her home health aide had taken the food home with her, or the delivery driver "made a mistake." The woman I spoke to at the Meals on Wheels company, told me that she would call the delivery driver to see what had happened. He didn't answer his phone, so she said she would email his supervisor and call me back. I never got a call back, but at 4:30, my mother called me and said that someone had called her and said that her food is always delivered on Mondays. Like that's an answer. I wondered if anyone else had experienced this. Meals on Wheels claiming that they had delivered when they hadn't. My mother has me to fight for her (and bring her food if she has nothing to eat). But, what about the shut-ins who have no one to advocate for them? P.S. I called back to say that I would like more information, but no one has called me back, yet. There are worse problems, I guess, but that's one of my challenges for today.
