Landline service issues

Has anyone else been experiencing major issues with landline service.  My elderly mother has lost service 3 times since September with outages lasting a week or more.  Calls have been made to Verizon's automated repair line.  They say the problem is resolved, but now it is taking 2 or 3 more follow-up service calls (with the same issue) for Verizon to fix, only to have the same problem occur a month or so later.  Problem is outside the house - inside wiring has been checked using Verizon's step by step instructions.  Mother needs landline for her Lifeline service.  I'm at a loss right now - does Verizon employ anyone who can service landlines anymore?
