This sentence meaning question:

My grandmother is always at home in the evenings.

To

My grandmother is always at home every evenings.

What's the difference between the two? It seems to me that they are similar in context, BUT I'm not sure.

There is no difference in their meaning apart from grammar. Your two sentences can be

My grandmother is always at home in the evening.

My grandmother is at home every evening.

They are different ways of saying the same thing, although the second example flows a bit better.

"Always at home every evenings" is not grammatical. Also, using both "always" and "every" in the same sentence is redundant. We would be more likely to say:

My grandmother is at home every evening.

or

My grandmother is always at home in the evening.

Otherwise, there's no real difference between the two expressions. This also goes for other time frames, like morning or afternoon.
