I tried this for my mother in law briefly, but she declined to eat the meals, or would put them aside then forget about them or complain that the delivery person wouldn't stay long enough. That's not to say that your mum would be the same of course. But I found that the only way my mother in law would eat was to have the physical presence of someone with her at mealtimes. A carer would come in and heat up a meal in the microwave and actually sit with her and chat while she ate, so it seemed like a social occasion. This was specifically written up in the care plan.I called ageuk who recommended a company called Appetito who do meals on wheels and also check all’s ok and will contact us if anything is not. It seemed like a good halfway house for the immediate future she will get a good hot meal and a regular visitor.
