How Do You Make a Sad Grandma Happy?

For some seniors, sadness and depression go hand in hand with aging. For example, your grandma may feel lonely or sad due to life changes such as illness, retirement, limited mobility, or the death of a spouse.

She may be grieving the death of your grandfather or a close friend. While these life changes are expected and normal, they can be challenging if your grandma feels lonely and isolated.

You can cheer up your grandma with small, thoughtful gestures that show how much you care.

Here are some ideas that you may find helpful:

  • Take your grandma out or make dinner at her home.
  • Call her in the evening to ask how her day was.
  • Take her on a spontaneous trip.
  • Go for a nature walk together.
  • Take your grandma to the movies.
  • Practice mindfulness together.
  • Give your grandma a gift that will cheer her up.
  • Say thank you.

Response to COVID-19

Devoted Guardians is actively monitoring the progression of the coronavirus, COVID-19, to ensure that we have the most accurate and latest information on the threat of the virus. As you know, this situation continues to develop rapidly as new cases are identified in our communities and our protocols will be adjusted as needed.

While most cases of COVID-19 are mild, causing only fever and cough, a very small percentage of cases become severe and may progress particularly in the elderly and people with underlying medical conditions. Because this is the primary population that Devoted Guardians serves, we understand your concerns and want to share with you how our organization is responding to the threat of COVID-19.

We are following updates and procedures from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) State Department of Health, local and county authorities, the Home Care Association of America and other agencies and resources. Our response and plans may adjust according to the recommendations from these organizations.
