Parents Moving In
I have recently asked my parents to move in with us, as they are both eighty and are starting to have health problems.
I really do not want to do this as my husband and I are in a early fifties and both work and love going out. But I feel really guilty as my dad still has to work as he never put away for their older years and he said he cannot live on the pension alone.
(My dad and mum like to go out and gamble at the casino at least twice a week), they both enjoy it and I do not see them giving this up any time soon.
My dad's health has been deteriorating of late and I know he will no longer be able to work. I have read all of these posts and frankly they have scared me to death.
I feel really selfish and guilty that I do not want them to move in and could not live with myself if anything happens....
The main reason that dad wants to move in is so as they can maintain there lifestyle as when they sell their family home they will get $300,000 and I know he wants mum and himself to have a good life before they die.
When I mentioned to dad about moving in with us I was talking about a year or two away, but dad has got no patience and has got their house valued and keeps asking me questions about it.
I wish I never bought it up and really would like some help with this.
Scared to Death
