Fact vs. Fiction Archive

Fiction: It's impractical to have your parents move in with you as they age.

Fact: If you have space available and it's safe for an elderly person, it may be suitable for an aging family member to move in with you. Of course, this is a major decision that should be carefully considered by all family members. It's one thing to provide housing; it's another matter to provide care for someone whose mental or physical state has deteriorated. Think carefully; all parties will be affected by this decision—personally, financially, and more.
