Jill from Oklahoma

Hello, my name is Jill I care for my grandma named Pat. She is 86 years old and suffers from fibromyalgia and arthritis. She has a hard time with everyday needs so I continue on a daily basis to go to her home and house to help her with all her necessities. I cook clean and watch TV at times with her we also tried to sew together and what she loved to do in her younger years. I do all this because I love her and wouldn't change it for the world if I had one thing to tell everyone it would be care for your loved ones while you can because they may not always be here. Don't watch them go to the nursing home care for them in their own home if you're able to.
