So my grandma has her own bedroom and a bathroom, which is her own space. There are no stairs, which is great it makes it easier for grandma Madeline for her lifestyle. This is the best living situation for my grandma Madeline and the family. The backyard of the house is nice, clean and organized.

My grandma likes the backyard and enjoys spend time to pick some of the fruits and vegetables.

When I went to visit them last year they seemed all in great spirits and the living situation seems like it is going very well. The reason I think it works well is because there is a great communication skill that comes with the family. They seem to have family discussions before an issue becomes a problem. Overall my grandma Madeline is such a sweet, quiet, smart, loving and easygoing person that things are handled just precisely appropriately in the given situation. Also that they have established a schedule which includes meal times and bedtime routines that works best for all of them in this
