Please help me think of ways to reduce the pain and tedium for my mom post surgery

My mom just had her third surgery to repair hip tendons and its expected that she will not be able to go anywhere without 2 crutches for 6-8 weeks. Besides limiting mobility, it also means that she won't be able to cook for some time--her lifelong passion and joie de vivre, besides plants. If she were nearby i would go spend time with her, but she's across the Atlantic (France, I'm in the US). I'm trying to think of ways to cheer her up, make life easier, ease the tedium. [more inside]

Engineering design mistake

I can't find a Wikipedia page I saw a while back. It was about a sort of design error or cognitive bias whereby designers or engineers reject as irrelevant (or are unaware of) a relevant factor in the requirements of a design because it is outside of their field. It gave an example which was about designing and providing water supplies in Africa. There were known ways to prevent a certain disease in the water, but the engineers were not familiar with them, so the disease spread.
