Your parents are no longer able to care for themselves.  You’re spending evenings and weekends at their house.  You’re worn out, exhausted.  You bring up the subject of moving and they say they’re “not ready”.  Sometimes “not ready” isn’t an option.  As long as they have you to rely on everyday, of course they’re not ready.  Why should they move to a care community when they have free and available help?  Every situation is different but when the care of your parents exceeds what they can do for themselves, when one is wearing out caring for the other or when caring for them is exhausting you it’s time for a serious talk about moving to a care community where help is available twenty four hours a day.
