In brief: Go with her to PT

Grandma is lucky to have you.
Physical therapists need honest feed back from patients in order to guide the therapy and/or refer them back to their md if there is no improvement/worsening. Talk to grandma and see if she is comfortable in having you go with her to one of her therapy sessions to be her advocate.
