 Chances are you could really use a hug from grandma right now… the whole world could probably use a hug from grandma right now. While visiting in person is not a good idea, there are other ways to let her know you love her (tbh, sending her a Chatbook is a great one, or consider setting her up with a no-fuss Photo Book Series). Protecting vulnerable audiences doesn’t mean ignoring them! Give your grandparents a call (and maybe even send them a link to our adult coloring book page or give them a pro tip from one of our sleep experts). This is such a great time to learn more about their personal history. We all know they have a lot to say, and right now you likely have the time to listen.
