Chelsea from Alabama

I take care of my grandpa full time. He has dementia and diabetes. He is still very much with us and lively as can be. I control his medications and make all of his meals. This is my full time job. My husband is very supportive. My grandpa likes to paint and do other crafty things. He also loves to spend time with my daughter. We love to take Day trips to the zoo and out for ice cream. Love being his caregiver all the time! We are thankful for all AARP does for our family and my grandpa! Hats off to you guys!
