Watching a loved one struggle with dementia is not an easy task, but one New York City storyteller found a way to discover joy and laughter in it. Robert Sherer told a funny story to a live audience about his elderly grandmother.
Sherer was a live-in caretaker for his grandmother while she was going through early onset dementia.
A Worried Grandmother
One day, when he came out of the bathroom, his grandmother handed him a piece of paper with a phone number on it. When he asked what it was, his grandmother told him she was “very, very worried” about him because he had to “go to the bathroom all the time.”
He ultimately learns that she was much sharper than he thought. We hope you enjoy the full story as told in the video below.
The story is featured on the storytelling blog The Moth.
