The Weekly Smile for the 9th of August, 2021 #weeklysmile

My smile:

This is kind of weird. I complained again to the aide agency about the fact that they were giving me night hours when I need help getting bathed and dressed for the day. My original aide is back, but can’t do days. So the agency manager/owner said I am going to call your case manager and tell her we can’t help you. I said fine. I was already fed up with the agency and their nonsense anyways. I quickly called my case manager and warned her. She said she would start looking for another agency. If I get the assisted living I won’t need the agency as they provide their own. About an hour later the agency called me and said this is weird. I literally just got a call from one of my aide’s and she feels she is being abused where she’s at and she wants to work in Williamstown (where I live, but none of the aides want to work here) and two she wants mornings. A trifle earlier than I was planning on, but I can always take a nap later. So I smiled for that and part of me wonders if by getting an aide that will work out perfectly if I will get the room at the assisted living and not need her. Things sometimes work out that way.

      1. This morning at the time she was supposed to be here, the agency called and said she had a personal emergency and had to rush her husband to the hospital and that she would be here on Monday. I have heard this so much it isn’t funny. Most jobs would have fired their employees who called the personal emergency card several times a week. They obviously don’t care about their clients well-being and some are worse off than I am. At this point, I would rather struggle on my own than deal with the nonsense I have had to put up with. If she doesn’t show up on Monday I am calling my case manager and requesting that she call them and take them off my case and put my request for an aide back out there and not to use that company. They weren’t on the original list of agencies to begin with, they had just put a feeler out when somehow they got my referral and jumped on it and have been handing me BS ever since I started with them. In the 3 months or so I have been with them I could probably count on both hands and feet how many times I actually saw an aide and I am entitled to 5 times a week for 4 hours each time. If I see one at all it is an hour or so. I am also entitled to full care which is why I so hope this assisted living facility works out.
