The project: Spend time with an elderly relative and her friends.
Three hours - this can take as little or as much time as you have available. We managed to work in a lunch date between morning studies and afternoon ballet class before heading out of town tonight.
Grandma doesn't hear well anymore, and she doesn't remember what she said five minutes ago, but she remembers a LOT from the past, is pleasant, laughs easily and enjoys company. She's a joy to be around.
It's also necessary for children to spend time with the older generations. So much can be shared, learned and enjoyed.
Yes. She lives in a retirement community (apartment-type setup with a shared dining area). Many of the residents enjoy the attention a visit from our little girls brings. The girls enjoy it, too. And I love to hear Grandma's laugh.
