shes very old, and the only person in a household of 6 people who does any cleaning housework or cooking.


im pretty sure just doin dishes would make her feel great, but she always tells me to stop. (maybe its to counter feeling useless, should i insist? do them when shes not there?)

like im intruding on her offical duties.


what idea can yall give me?

anything, just something she would appreciate.

Does she drive? Is there somewhere she would like to go but cant?

I used to take my gramma to the library. It was her favorite place and she didnt drive so it meant something. Not enough, of course. I was a self-centered teenager with a drivers license.

Let her know how much you appreciate everything she does.

From the heart.

Have a professional photographer take a portrait of the two of you together. She will appreciate it now and you will appreciate it when she is gone.

When I worked at a nursing home, I once read a letter to one of the residents, from her grandson. He was probably in his late 20's.


It was a very simple letter, just about everyday things. At one point he wrote "Grandma, when I think back on all those potato pancakes you made for me, when you knew no one else liked them, I know how much you love me, and I love you."

Both of us started crying, it was just so sincere.

She said, as she wiped at her eyes with her dainty hanky "That boy surely loved those potato pancakes."

Take her out to dinner one night, just the two of you.

Kiss her on the cheek and give her a hug and say "Thanks" and "I love you" from time to time.

Say nice things about her to others in her hearing.

Find something special for her, like an album of a singer she likes or a book by an author she's mentioned.

The list is endless. Just think about her and be thoughtful.

i am rather non-emotional so just doin something simple like that would probablly be the best thing in the world for me to do.

@OGIONIK,
Making her feel that you pretty all sure appreciate everything she does always counts Wink Grandma is so special, right?

@OGIONIK,
Ogionik,
You're so sweet dear. Doing something for your granda, for sure she'll be very pleased to that. It's Mother's Day today, I know you're preparing special for her! Don't you?

Why don't you give her a special treat? Like a surprise breakfast, lunch or dinner it doesn't matter as long as you make her feel special. There are times that we tend to feel awkward at times that we share sweet thoughts and gestures to our love ones but sometimes we need to. To lessen whatever they feel. Smile I hope it can help.
