Keeping Nana in Touch

Keegan with his nana

Keegan spends many hours with his Nana. (Our children call her G’Ma.) Their time together is so important. Nana has imprinted herself on Keegan’s childhood. She has shared so many memories with him over the years. Nana will have a life-long influence on Keegan’s character, even through these years when she has slipped into a shadow of her once-vibrant self. Keegan is learning gentle, loving care and patience as he helps Nana navigate her life these days. He has been her mentor in learning how to communicate with the rest of the family on-line and on her cell phone. She may be getting an I-Pad soon! The sky is the limit with Keegan and his moms at her side – her caregivers too.

About Kim Lee

Robert “Kim” Lee and Melanie Ann Lee founded Flourish in Place to help seniors and adults with disabilities thrive and flourish while leading dignified and independent lives in the comfort and safety of their own homes. Kim and Melanie raised three remarkable children while helping care for Melanie’s wonderful mother, Kathryn, who lived a rich life despite dealing with bipolar disorder all her life and suffering later from post-polio syndrome. Melanie has cared for her intellectually disabled older sister for the past 18 years as Melinda’s court-appointed plenary guardian. Kim’s mother, Betsy, suffers from severe dementia. She lives in her own home with the help of compassionate family members as well as paid caregivers.
