I do not understand our local Lifeline system
Well, our invalid neighbor did it again. Last night about 10:30 we got a call from the local lifeline people asking Leone to check on our neighbor. She did and she had fallen this time she broke an arm and cracked a rib. Fortunately after late last falls escapade when I had to crawl in the upper floor bathroom window I had given this woman a new door lock for her front door and insstalled it. Then I disabled the storm door lock so we had entry with one of the keys we kept. I couldn't help Leone I would have just been in the way. Leone called 911 and the ambulance took this woman to the emergency room where they called us to tell us about the broken bones. I called this woman's son who lives about 50 miles away and gave him the news. No point in coming here after 11:00 so he said he would be here in the morning. After we were in bed, the phone rang at about 1:00 AM and the doctor on duty wanted Leone to go to her house and bring all tyhe medications she takes guess they would give her drugs from the hospital pharmacy but he wanted to see every one of her prescriptions, so about 1:45 Leone finally crawled in bed and stayed there for the rest of the night.
I thought that the whole idea of Lifeline was that if you pushed the button emergency responders, well responded instead of calling a neighbor. Not that we mind helping this woman but why call a neighbor we aren't EMTs or paramedics which if someone pushes the Lifeline button I would surely think they would need
Leone just came back from the hospital after taking the neighbors mail and paper there and said that her son and DIL had laid down the law, she absolutely was not coming home but take a choice between 2 assisted living homes. I guess she was arguing but there was no give, YOU ARE NOT GOING BACK TO THAT HOUSE. In a way we hate to see it but will be glad if she is in a safer environment.
In all this about all I could do was give moral support to Leone she had to do all the work.
