Wonderful Wednesday: Hi, Grammie!

08 Apr

Charles, Here.

Grammie is fine, thanks for asking.

They locked down her Assisted Living community a few weeks ago because of COVID-19. No one there has it, thankfully. There are over 450 residents and tons of workers. Grammie is served her meals in her room and is only limitedly allowed to go out in the hall. She is not happy because she can’t go down to the gym and do her little bicycle machine, which she was doing every day until this happened. At almost 95, even a little movement helps keep her legs from swelling and atrophy setting in.

Mom dropped off a care package Sunday, to the security desk, before they locked the campus to any traffic. Grammie called immediately to tell us that she was so excited and that it felt like Christmas. We loaded 2 big canvas bags with tons of crackers, pretzels, candy, cereal, lotions, soaps, personal stuff, and we even made a big album of family pictures. Grammie doesn’t see very well, so the pictures were really big. She especially liked the ones of me.

Please make sure to reach out to your seniors by phone so they feel less alone during this isolation period. Even just a short hello can make them feel thought of and valued.

Stay well and wash your paws.

Just another DogDaz morning at the zoo ❤

    we always look for our older neighbors… it has something strange to scream “hello, how are ya?” over the street :O)

      Strange maybe, but good.

    What a thoughtful and fun gift for Grammie! I can see why she was happy and excited about it. We are glad to hear she is in a good, safe place and is doing fine. Rock on, Grammie!

    Love and licks,
