The Watcher

When senior citizens lose their vision, they often lose their independence. Some are placed in nursing homes by well-meaning family members who are concerned about their welfare. Such is the case of the grandmother in this story. The granddaughter arrives just as the old woman is leaving the facility and making her way home. She agrees to help her grandmother regain her independence. “The Watcher” was published in Behind Our Eyes, an anthology of stories and poems by disabled writers. You can read it onh my Web site.
