Handyman Can Help Elders Stay in Home
Convincing Aging Parent to Consider Assisted Living

Selling Dad’s House Difficult Topic

Dear Carol: My dad is 86. He has moderate dementia progressing to the later stages and lives in a memory unit of a good assisted living facility near me. Although Dad’s been here nearly a year, he still owns his home 250 miles away. The home sits empty, even though we have people mowing the lawn and shoveling snow.  Dad is healthy except for his dementia and could live for quite some time. I’d like to sell the home and furnishings, and he often agrees, but then says he can’t because it’s all too much to deal with. I can understand this and of course would handle the sale alone. I don’t think he’s emotionally able to even visit the home anymore.
