about a senior citizen. went to visit my grandpa before. my grandparents(on my moms side) live down the shore at a retirement home thingy, and my grandpa is at an Alzheimer elderly care center. the upsetting part is that out of everyone in my family, he doesn’t remember me. i mean, we’re not really close or anything, but still. i’m the one person he never seems to remember. he always asks my mom who i am.
anywho, my mom brought her ipod with her which had old Italian music on it and got a pair of headphones for him to listen to. once he started listening to the music, he burst out into song and knew every word. it was so touching that my mom almost started to cry. i thought it was kind of cool to see how even though he couldn’t remember a lot of things about his family or his past, he was able to sing along to every word of a song that at one point, he fell in love with.
