Getting my parents to even *think* about moving out of their house is not an easy task. However, for their safety, they really need to move somewhere that is one level living.
Doesn't my mother look right at home sitting in that chair? :-) This place was adorable and has all the emenities they need. And it's safe. And they could walk out the door to the ocean. And they could walk out the door to the store. And they could walk out the door to a restaurant. And I wouldn't have to worry about them on the stairs. :-) And it's only about 15 minutes further away from where they live now. Sounds like a win win situation to me. Now the hard part is getting it all to happen. Please cross your fingers and toes for me that a first floor unit opens up soon. And that they agree to the move when it does.
