This is the heart-warming moment a young kid helped feed his great grandad with Alzheimer’s disease.
Six-year-old Colton Keith patiently fed great grandpa Franklin Frye, 79, coleslaw and baked potato at the dinner table at the Keith family house in Saltville, Virginia, on July 11.
Franklin suffers from both dementia and Alzheimer as is unable to do anything by himself, according to Colton’s mum Nichole Eastridge, 28.
While filming Colton taking care of his grandpa, Nichole can’t stop telling people him ‘I am proud of you’.
Nichole said: “My grandad Franklin lives on his own but he’s unable to look after himself, so we go to his house every day.
“Colton always wants to come with me and he will usually help feed him once a day.
“He also helps him drinking water, pushes him around in his wheelchair and put his shoes on.
“He just randomly wants to help and that makes me proud.
“The fact that he is willing to do this at six years of age touches my hear.”
