If Mom refuses to go to the dining room, who will bring her food? Will they just leave it in her room, or will someone assist her?
We try our best to bring residents to meals and activities. I understand that her sitters and caregivers have not been successful in persuading her to go to activities and to dining in her past locations. Although we will try multiple times, and different people will make attempts to involve Mom, we do not force or compel anyone against their will.
As far as delivery, we have a cart that goes up to deliver meals. The server who goes upstairs, or the caregiver on each floor, takes care to prepare each person’s tray in front of them, with cutlery and encouragement at the ready. Some people do require more assistance, and we can accommodate their needs as well.
