    Of course. Until the end. They looked after our parents and ourselves. Make their last days as comfortable as you would want to be in their situation.

    I think if it is within our power, we should do whatever we can to care for and protect our grandparents. I say "within our power" as meaning we live nearby, have the financial means, etc. Even at a distance, we can still help them in different ways. My grandparents are no longer alive, but I would still be helping if they were.

    It depends on the person, the relationship with their grandparents, and what they are willing to do/not do. It especially depends if they have a mental disorder or a physical disorder. I personally can-not change diapers, give baths, and basically play babysitter/mom for my grandparents. I find it nasty, and its degrading/embarrassing for both me and my grandparent (s).  If I had the means I would pay someone and make sure they are taken care of (clean them, make sure they are fed, make sure they are physically safe and happy). I would want them to be comfortable, retain their dignity and be happy!!

      I agree it does depend on the nature of the relationship you have with them as well as one's ability to care for them.

    Absolutely, do everything you can to assist them. It should be priority one. Nothing is as important as looking after your family inclusive of parents, grandparents, children...

    I’m a strong believer that you look after your parents and grandparent, did they have to ask someone to look after us, I think not. I feel as if they gave up a lot trying to make sure we were taking care of, so it’s our time to do right by them. Maybe we think that we have more things to do besides being tried down helping our loved ones. But what if they thought that way when it came to us? Don’t you think that they would prefer to take care of them self not having to depend on anyone?

    Along with looking after our parents, Its our responsibility, to look after our grand parents. Because, It was they, who were responsible for our parent's birth. If they haven't exist on this earth, how would, we be on this earth.
