Parents should NEVER live with their children!

September 30, 2013

He was adamant!  His grandfather had lived with his family for several years before his death.  Dad remembered his Grandpa as an ornery old man who caused lots of work for his mother and was no fun to be around.  There was NO WAY he was going to move west with me. Besides he loved it up north.

I arranged for a friend of the family to “visit” up north for a summer.  She was caring for her mother with dementia and we explained that she needed help.  Dad was glad to help and enjoyed the company.  They worked on projects around the house and yard together.  She did the driving and cooking.

He didn’t need to know that she was being paid.
