Boiling Mad

I had breakfast with my sister this morning which is always a treat on Tuesday mornings. She told me something that made anger swell up in me. Last week my Aunt Katie (102) who has people that come in to help her from time to time had an afternoon person that went into her bedroom, found the key she had hid to her dresser, and emptied her wallet of the money she had. The next morning she was going to give her "good" helper money to buy groceries and found it empty.

She is the sweetest, kindest and lovingest lady I know and it really hurts that anyone would take anything from her. The agency that had been sending the help over has been notified not to send any more afternoon help since when they do come mostly they are just a bother and sleep. Can't get good help these days.

My sweet cousin from NV is here and has the bull by the horns so to speak and I am so glad of that. She is a blessing and takes such good care of our aunt. We'll make sure that this doesn't happen again.

Otherwise the day is good, my meds are working and God is good, all the time.


  1. What a horrible thing to have happen! I'm so sorry! It happens far too often though I'm afraid. Glad to hear that the meds are working!

  2. Sad to say these things happen more than they should. Help for the seniors pays low so they don't get much for workers. Hope your aunt finds someone trustworthy.

  3. That's terrible. I have a friend who works with elderly and handicapped people, cleans, helps them do little chores, and she said the company she works for can't find enough good people they can trust, so even though, she wants only part time, she works full time hours. (she's wonderful) One young girl they had set the clocks to fit her schedule and not the 100 year old woman's she watched, she was supposed to wake her up at certain times and would let her sleep....terrible stuff like that. So sad. Makes me sick to my stomach.

    I hope and pray your aunt finds someone kind and trustworthy.

  4. That is horrible! People suck.

  5. Just too awful for words. It's horrible that there are such mean people in the world.

  6. I can see why you're so angry.
    It's terrible what has happened.
