Dweller in nature
Lunch: White bean soup, French fries, and more of the same fresh fruit.
Is the staff just forgetful, or are they of the philosophy that you need those things to be healthy and they need to not-so-subtly try to trick you into eating it?Breakfast: Malt-O-Meal, fresh fruit, plain doughnut, lemon tea. I’m not eating the scrambled eggs and bacon they also gave me.
Right now we are on lockdown because of a flu outbreak. They’re trying to contain it, so we’re not getting our meals in the dining room but delivered to our rooms. For the sake of efficiency, they’re delivering basically the same things to everyone. They’re giving us oatmeal/Cream of Wheat/Malt-O-Meal plus eggs and bacon to everyone every day. I eat whatever is vegetarian, but I don’t eat the eggs because they’re gross and they also put the bacon directly on the eggs so they’re contaminated anyway. This has been going on for over a week now and I don’t know when room delivery for everyone is going to stop. Before this outbreak, I’d just eat cold cereal or whatever else I had in my room. Then I got a cold and I wasn’t leaving my room so I ran out of my own food. I just throw out what I don’t eat. I can’t wait for things to get back to normal.Is the staff just forgetful, or are they of the philosophy that you need those things to be healthy and they need to not-so-subtly try to trick you into eating it?
There’s a possibility that this lockdown ends tomorrow and they’ll reopen the dining room, at which point I can get some decent meals again. I’m keeping my fingers crossed!Ugh, you poor thing. I can imagine everyone must be going stir-crazy. My boyfriend's father is in an assisted living facility and there was a memo sent our recently with hygiene practices to avoid spread of disease. Basically, there was a nasty stomach bug that was rampant in the dementia wing and they were trying to keep it contained there.
