My grandmother recently moved into a nursing home.
She had been living alone (but with support services coming in) but realised that it was just becoming too hard to do. After all, she is over 100 years old and is almost completely blind.
I've been trying to phone her at the nursing home to have a chat. With the time zones and so on I made a guess at the best times, but can never seem to catch her in her room.
My sister called me on Friday and I asked her when the best time to call might be. She suggested to try quite late in the evening (which I hadn't thought a good time).
The crazy old woman is in the gym half the day and has just asked my sister to go buy her some more gym clothes. She just loves the physical therapy stuff and can out perform folks 20 years her junior.
She's a couple of months shy of her 101st birthday and she's become a gym bunny!
