The Thanksgiving week is upon us and family is coming into town for the feast! Tonight is the night before and I have an AA commitment this evening at a nearby jail. In preparation for that I had made a lasagna for company, since I will not be here to cook for them. That way it will be a simple matter for those at the house to pop it in the oven and re-heat it. (1) Unfortunately one of the caregivers felt it was alright to eat a piece yesterday for lunch. She claims I told her there was enough, but I also remember telling her that it was for dinner tonight. (2) Another one has an unfortunate habit of showing up 10-15 minutes late for her morning shift. I would like them all to show up a bit early so they can overlap and ‘pass-the-baton’ in so many words. Also, if one is late it means the previous caregiver has to stay later than they would like, possibly making them late for their day-job. (3) I came home last night hoping to eat a bowl of chili that was in the fridge and it was gone.
I think it’s time for a staff meeting and see if I can’t address these issues.
