My grandpa says that family is like a human body. Every member is like is like a part of the that body. If any part gets hurt, the pain can be felt in every part of the body.
No matter what happens, no matter if you are close or miles away, you cannot live even for one day without remembering them. Family is what we are and who we belong to.
Like other American families, because of our hectic working lives and hundreds of miles of distance from our families, winter is the best time for family meetups and to spend time with each other. My grandfather and grandmother came to meet us from New City NY during winter vacations.
There are many more reasons for which I love winters and this is one of the reasons. My grandpa, he is very special for me and me for him as well. He is like my best friend. I’m the only child of my parents, maybe that’s why he loves me so much.
But two years back, everything got changed. My grandma passed away. This was a big loss for all of us but for grandpa, it was something unbelievable.
Definitely, losing a person with whom you spent all your life and suddenly everything just got disappeared with the blink of an eye is more than just a terrible shock. After that, I saw drastic changes in him. Not just he became sad and upset but he became weak and his health declined.
He stopped talking, became lonely. Things got worse last year when we received a call from the hospital. During a routine morning walk, he lost his consciousness and fell down. Medic took him to hospital.
After a thorough examination and plenty of tests, the doctor came to the conclusion that grandpa was suffering from chronic fatigue syndrome, diabetes and blood pressure fluctuation. This was disturbing news.
He got discharged from the hospital after 16 exhausting days. We took him home with us. After a few days, he told us that he wanted to go back to New City NY. We insisted to let him stay with us but he said he wants to live with the memories of grandma.
My father searched for Health Care Agency in New City NY and fortunately, we found one with ample experience and complete certification. This was a moment of relief for us.
The private pay home care in New City NY told us about all the procedure and we witnessed the care taking process ourselves. We were more than satisfied when we say how they set all the plans from medication to all other activities of routine. We felt at many points that they can take better care of him.
