It’s heartchopping seeing close loved a singles become slowly disabled plus incapacitated.
- By the time I was seasoned enough to analyze the mortality of our loved a singles, our Grandparents were already becoming disabled.
I never saw their transition from young plus healthy to seasoned plus fragile. I always took it for granted that our Grandparents weren’t as agile as our parents were. There were times when I wanted to play with our Grandfather however our mom had to remind me to be gentle plus not cause him to trip or fall in the grass outside. At the time I didn’t realize that a single fall could put our Grandfather in the hospital. It took years for our parents to start transitioning into this stage. By the time our parents reached their 50s, both sets of Grandparents had already been moved to assisted residing facilities. None of them were safe being left alone in their houses or condominiums, especially if any of them fell on the difficult cement floor. It’s sad to see them residing in glorified nursing homes, however at least they get apartments where they can live an independent lifestyle. The heating plus cooling systems in the complex were updated a few years ago as well. They told me that their unit came with a ductless mini cut heating plus cooling system. There’s a mini cut in the residing room plus another in the family room. When they get to the dining room for breakfast each night, the a/c is always set to a comfortable temperature. It’s never too chilly that they’re forced to wear a overcoat. Likewise, it’s never too hot either.
