Hello everyone!

I hope you're all well and healthy.
I wisited my grandma and she is 85 years old. She really likes flowers and plants. She gifted me these 2 plants, cuz she has no more time and energy to care about so many pots and plants. Looks like they're not in a good shape anymore. Any recommendations? What should I do first? One of them grows a little flower, but the cactus is halfway yellow.

The second plant is showing the evidence of low light in the past, which caused the stems to grow narrower for a while, before stronger light was provided and they grew the normal width again. The narrow growth will never widen. This info just to explain why the stems appear to have 2 different widths. That plant could use a slightly wider pot in the near future. It looks quite healthy at this point. You could try to propagate it from one of the babies if you can find one without a narrow stem at the bottom, otherwise leave the clump intact and let it grow out.
