What to do - Mom will not allow me to fall proof home for Dad

by Daughter
(Florida)

My mother is 84 years young. Dad is 87 and has issues with falling. Mom will allow modifications to their home, if:


1) If it is not in a room where she might have company. The neighbors are not allowed to see a "house for old people", or a less than "beautiful" home.

2) If it does not change her decorating scheme.

3) If you spend a fortune on making it pretty, rather than practical.

The implication of this article is that we the adult children do not know what to do. We actually do, but one or both of the elderly parents will not accept it.
Write about that...
