Elder Care visiting

About a year ago, I received a visit one day from a woman from "Elder Care". I don't know where she got my name or what the purpose of her visit was, but she had heard about my situation and wanted to check on me to make sure I was okay. She ended up coming a few times to check on me. Now she's learned that I've moved and she wrote to me asking that I call her to make an appointment for her to visit me here. It's the strangest thing because she doesn't do anything to help me. She looks around to see how I'm living. She makes notes. She goes away and then she comes back. Now we're playing phone tag because, honestly, most of the time that she's working, I've been sleeping! lol But I don't mind if she visits me here. I have no idea what she's going to say about this place or if there's anything she can really do to help me. I think I've come a long way since the first time she met me. But I guess I'll find out when she finally gets here! lol -Claudia- image from pixabay

You will have to let us know what comes of this visit. If it were me, I would probably ask her what the purpose was or what she was looking for.

I will if she ever comes for this visit. So far the phone tag continues and I'm about to just give up on the whole thing.

@CRK109 If it feels uncomfortable then surely you must tell her to stop her visits.Usually,when people from Elder Care visit,they would at least ask whether you needed any help.I am surprised she have not done this so far.

She usually just asks a lot of questions and looks around. I suspect her visits here would be very short since I only have three rooms!

Invite her to come to see you only if you feel that you like to see her. Do not feel obliged to let her come into your new apartment.

Well, I honestly don't see the need for her to come, since I have no idea what the necessity is. If she gave me a good reason, that might change things. I have called her but she hasn't called me back so I guess she's busy visiting other seniors. We'll see what happens.

@CRK109 It's a good idea just to wait and see if she calls you back.

If nothing else, at least she cares.

I'm not sure she really cares. I think it's just her job.

I hope when she makes her visit that she is able to offer you some assistance of some sort. I'm sure she'll be surprised at how much progress you've made over the last year

I don't really know what assistance she can offer me, but I'm open to anything that might be available.
