Taking Care of a Parent in My Home

How hard would it be to take care of a parent in my home?

Peter in California, 41

Before considering taking a parent into your home, make sure that they are part of the decision process.  You also need to involve anyone else who will be impacted by this decision such as your spouse or children.  Even a cat or dog needs to be factored in because an older person could easily trip over a pet if they’re not used to having one around. Write out all the pros and all the cons about moving in, and look at your list objectively and realistically. Also have everyone involved write out their own list so that all concerns, hopes, and wishes are addressed and acknowledged.
