Sh’vat 2nd, 5775
A few days ago I had my first day with a meal on wheels company. We deliver the meals to elderly people since many of them are handicapped or dement or so. So they geht the meals from a canteen kitchen and I am one of the drivers who deliver the meals.
Sometimes I am having trouble to enter the apartments. It stinks that I need three tries to get in without vomiting.
But the worst is not that it’s hard to bear the odor – the worst is, that most of these old people live in apartments in 2nd, 3rd ….. or 6th floor, cannot walk and hence are unable to leave their apartment. Once they reached this state, they are trapped in their apartments until they die.
