Grammy

In July, we were faced with the difficult prospect of moving Grammy, my grandmother, to a new home--one that could accommodate her advancing Alzheimer's. After about six weeks of searching for the perfect place and finding that all the good places were filled, a spot at one of our desired locations opened up. We are very pleased with Grammy's new home and the care she receives there. Sadly, she doesn't know us by name anymore, and we have to remind her we're family, but she sure does love our visits. We are her only family in-state, so we visit her regularly and make sure she knows how much she is loved.

Grammy has been sooo lucky to have you watching out for her well being during these confusing times.
May God Bless you all for rising to the task of making sure she is safe. I'm so impressed at how you are showing your children the value of her life, even when she isn't knowing who you are anymore.

Looks like the kids enjoy visits with Grammy! Or at least having their pictures taken with her!
