Hello Chandini and thanks for writing in
Do not worry HIV cannot transmitted by living together until you have any blood contact by any means. I understand your tension about your daughter. If you are sure that there is no blood contact between child and grand parents than need not to worry. Else to give relaxation to your mind get check the HIV test of your daughter and feel relaxed. I am quite sure that that will came back negative.
Hope this will help you.
Best Wishes

Living with HIV positive people doesn't lead to HIV infection so nothing to worry . HIV virus spread by using contaminated syringes, unsafe blood transfusions, unsafe sexual habits, drug abusers taking injections, unsafe tattooing , and perinatal transmission to baby from infected mother. So staying with hiv infected people will not lead to HIV.
