When someone’s sick, it’s those little things you do for them which matter most. Illness can make any of us feel crummy. We aren’t at our best. Seeing family and dear friends is a definite plus, but what can make what we’re going through bearable is when they help make us look nice on the outside so we can feel stronger and more ourselves on the inside.
A video has been circulating social media of two sisters who are in their 90’s themselves, making their 97-year-old sister look and feel beautiful. It’s been viewed millions of times and shared by hundreds of thousands of people. It’s not surprising why.
The woman says from her hospice bed: “One sister taking care of another, huh?”
The video was posted on the Love What Matters Facebook page: “My 97-year-old grandma is being loved by her sisters, all in their 90s,” the post alongside the video read. “When my sisters are old, I will brush their hair and make sure they look pretty, until the very end.”
The message concluded: “My grandma got her wish to have hospice in her own home.”
The video shows the two sisters hovering over their bed-ridden sister. They are working together to fix her hair.
“Let’s get her bangs like she wears them,” one is heard saying.
The other added: “Now, let me get the back a little bit.”

All the women wore glasses and have short white hair. In the background, a woman can be heard saying: “looking good!”
Because of this heartwarming touching and very personal video, other’s on social media have begun to share their own sentimental moments with their loved ones.
“The day before my 80-year-old dad passed, after the hospice nurses bathed him, I called his twin brother and asked if he wanted to shave dad (He had shaved dad in ICU),” one Facebook user wrote in a comment, including a photo of his uncle shaving his father’s beard.
Children even took part in the beautification process. One little boy can’t contain his excitement as he combs his great-grandmother’s hair.
“Having your hair combed makes you feel good, human,” the user wrote in the comment section. “Here my grandson is brushing his best friends (sic) hair, my mom, his great grandmom. I treasure them both.”
You don’t need to spend a lot of money to bring joy to someone’s day. The best gifts are those that are free and come from the heart.
