  1. My mom has lived with me for 5 years now and every single day without fail she says “I’m so grateful that I’m living with you”

  2. Mom has told me several times she appreciates all w do. She will be 91 in a couple of weeks. We moved her in with us over sear ago. She can’t walk , has dementia and it is hard for her to verbalize her feelings so it means a lot.

  3. I think sometimes guilt causes those who get care, or family of those people, to not verbalize appreciation.
