How do you care about your Grandparents?
June 16, 2007 6:17am CST
Here in our country most of the families are willing to take care for our grandparents. We usually take care of them in everybody's home and show them love in many ways and they are always welcome. For us we don't let them be taken for granted for just bringing them in some institution that are caring for the olds and leave them. But there are some people that don't have time, money, and effort to do so, and it is very sad because without our grandparents we are not here either. How very sad that in a little time that they spent here in the world the people that are with them is not there relatives. How about you guys any thoughts about this matter? How do you care about your olds?

I think that's the way it should be - the family caring for the elderly in a family. I loved my grandparents and had a wonderful relationship with all of them but am afraid I lost my last living grandparent 3 years ago. My father's mother. There is so much that young people can learn from older generations and there are still many times I wish my grandparents were alive because I know they would have an answer to some question I have. Love, honor, respect, and learn from older people while you can, no one lives forever.

We love our grandparents, without them we wouldn't be here. When our grandparents are still alive, we find time to visit them. Sometimes they live with us too but since we're a little far we didn't have the chance to be together more often. These last two years, our grandma stayed with us and it was her last. She passed away and we are very sad. We miss her alot. Although there are different ways in showing how we love grandparents, I'm sure we all appreaciate them no matter what.

Unfortunately, all my grandparents passed away. My grandmother left me when I was eleven years old. From time to time, I still remember the happy moment with her and I miss her so much. I think nowadays, more and more people are too busy to take care of them, even no time to see them. It's really a sad news. As we know, what those senior citizen need is concern from their children. They do not need material gifts just more time with them is okay. I think, we should manage to find more time to be with them. That's what they eager for most. Just my own opinions. Have a nice day! :)

I don't have any grandparents left except one grandmother . I don't get along with her very well and we never see each other as she lives quite a distance from me . She doesn't care for me and we were buying a house from her years ago and she sold it out from under us when we had the money for it and for a lot less then she wanted from us . She was trying to charge us tripple what she ended up selling it for after we were told we were approved for the money . We haven't spoke since and I don't care if I ever speak to her again . My husband only has one grandmother left as well and although we get along with her we don't see her very often as she doesn't come around and we don't really go around where she lives as it is in a different area . We keep in touch through family and friends .
