Little Tips For Our aging Grand(parents)

Write big
Phones with big buttons
Sweaters with big buttons not zippers
Chapstick without tiny lids
Toothpaste without tiny lids
Plastic flowers
Chocolate
Pump bottle body wash
No slip socks
Cozy slip on Pj’s
Big calendar
Dry erase board
Extra time to talk
Do not interrupt
Call
Visit
Listen even if it’s the same story again
Be kind
Have tough skin
Remember we too will be there

Thinking of my grandmother today at 91. She is still alive and well with all her wit intact.
