Why I won’t buy grandma a Christmas present this year
“Last year we got her a present and she just kept opening it over and over again,” says 16-year-old Charlotte.
“She was happy but she wasn’t really aware of why she’d got it and now she’s in a worse state than she was last year.”
Charlotte is telling Newsbeat about her grandma, who has dementia and now lives in a care home full-time.
She says her grandma came to visit her family on Christmas Day but got “quite distressed”.
This year, she says, they will go to the nursing home to visit her instead.
