What Should a New Grandma Do?

Becoming a grandparent can be one of the most exciting moments in your life. To be an amazing grandma, make sure you’re well prepared for this new role. Offer the right sort of help to new parents, such as a home-cooked meal or taking care of laundry.

Be discreet and allow the new parents to get to know their baby and some alone time. Then, accept that you have no control and accept the parents’ rules.

So, don’t buy excessive gifts, give unwanted advice, or spoil your grandchildren too much. Remember that the backbone of being a good grandma is respect—for the parents’ wishes, your grandchild’s well-being, and your own time and needs.

Devoted Guardians'
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.
