About Me - My name is Hailey and I am 8 years old. I have been caring for my grandma since I was four years old. Grandma has Alzheimer's disease, which means that she has trouble with her memory. Sometimes, if upsets her and she gets frustrated when she cannot remember things. I spend time with her, tell her funny stories and solve puzzles with her. I try to think about ways that we can enjoy ourselves. I hope to hear from other kids about their experiences caring for someone. I would like for other kids to realize that they are not alone!
