Hello, I am a freshman at Wilkes Community College and I live at home with my mom and my grandmother. I have experience in taking care of both of my grandmothers. One of my grandmothers lived at my dad's house for two years, and during those years I took care of her. She was elderly, living up to 91 in her last days. I helped her with her basic needs every day, but for the most part she was a sharp lady. My current grandmother is turning 89 this year. She had a stroke a few years back so as for care-giving, it has been a different experience than with my other grandmother. My grandmother isn't able to comprehend everything, nor say everything on her mind, but nevertheless my Mom has taught me to be patient and try to figure out what she's trying to tell us. With this patience, I have learned to love taking care of my grandmother and her needs.
