My grandmother was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease when I was 4 years old. (I am now 9 years old).  I wanted to help care for her, so my mom gave me easy puzzles to solve with my Grandma. I felt like I was doing a good thing because when we worked on puzzles we were both very happy. As the years went by, I learned about different ways of helping my grandmother.
