An elderly lady had cat food put on her breakfast sandwich by the home care assistant, who thought she had put on liver pâté - because she couldn't read Danish. The neighbor, who discovered the mistake is outraged, and now the municipality has apologized.
- It tasted like hell.
The 80-year-old lady from Tårnby had an unpleasant surprise on Saturday when she took a bite of the sandwich that a home care assistant had made for her.
For what Lilian Thystrup Jacobsen thought was a fairly normal sandwich with liver pâté, a popular food item in Scandinavia, where it is known as Leverpostej, which she often gets at lunch, it turned out to be a piece of rye bread with cat food.
- My sweet neighbor discovered it because home care had left when I took a bite of the food. I get much I can not remember, but this simply tasted too bad, she says to Extra Bladet.
The next day, the same home care assistant who had made the cat food sandwich to the 80-year-old lady came back, and neighbor Pia Jensen confronted her with the incident.
- She just tried to blame it on Lilian and said that she had asked her if it was liver pâté. But it is outrageous that she can not read what it says on the package when she's going to make a meal for an old lady. It is shameful.
However, Pia Jensen explains that something good has come out of it.
- Now she has got a regular home care assistant who comes every morning, so something positive you can say has happened.
On social media people find it both obvious and dangerous that the municipality hires immigrants who cannot read Danish, and then let them make food of whatever they find in the kitchen.
