I’ve just had to send yet another email to the manager at my brother’s supported living service. I looked in his kitchen and have Do I really need to explain yet again that the following is excessive and unhealthy:
- Almost 100 weetabix plus 3 other boxes of cereal
- 5 packets of spaghetti
- 4kg of rice
- A huge bag of potatoes starting to go green
- Only two apples
I could go on sadly. He’s a single man living on his own. He lacks capacity to make budget decisions or understand portion control and needs help with almost all cooking etc.
I’ve spoken to the managers umpteen times already and I’m losing my cool. I’m the “good cop” but if they don’t buck up their ideas, I’m going to let loose the "bad cop " in the form of our undiplomatic and rude Dad!
Ok, rant over. Will be back another time with more sibling stories as requested.
Hugs to anyone else banging their head against a brick wall xx
