“My 97-year-old grandma has been loved by her sisters, all within their 90s,” the accompanying caption says. “When my sisters are old, I will brush their hair and ensure they appear pretty, before the very end. My grandma got her want hospice in her own home.”
The two sisters-turned-stylists laugh and discuss the state of their third sister’s bangs, twirling a round brush and trying to provide them shape “like she wears them.”The third sister is all smiles and clearly?happy to be around her family.
“Looking good!” one sister proclaims because the hairstyle is completed, and the love within the room is palpable.
The clip is short, however the message of family?and closeness is enough to invoke a tear from any viewer.?Just as the sisters are supporting one another, the Facebook comments also offer the trio, applauding their close bond and sharing their own experiences caring for family members in hospice or during times of illness.
“As an individual who cares for those in the final stretch of the lives, I take great pride in brushing the hair of these I take care of until their final days or perhaps moments at times,” writes Facebook user Erin Macleod in a comment that currently has 16,000 likes.”It’s so essential to never let go of who they are and what is vital that you them – particularly when they are able to no longer express it on their own. For many ladies, providing them with fresh nice clothing along with a fresh face before their visitors arrive during the day may be the biggest and most beautiful act of dignity and respect you can share with them in those difficult moments.”
With 15 million views and 330,000?shares and counting, it’s clear that?during a time when our screens are full of disheartening headlines and news reports, an optimistic video like this one is more than welcome.
