A case worker from the Senior Services arm of my local county government came by this morning to evaluate my mother and see if she is eligible for Meals on Wheels. And she is! That is great news because now someone will come by each weekday between and 11 and 12 and bring her a hot lunch and visit with her for a few minutes. That extra human contact should be a big help to her. Even with the sitter coming in the afternoons, my mother spends a great deal of time alone and having this break in the day should be of great value to her. While she is capable of fixing herself a lunch using the microwave, she gets tired of the monotony of microwave food. And even if the food they bring her isn't something that she really likes, she will still get to have human interaction. Maybe she won't feel so alone.
