How can I explain to my mom that dad can't be a handy man and fix things around the house like he used to?
My father is 81-years-old and has had every ailment known to man, and has managed to overcome everyone of them. However he is still pretty fragile, but my mother INSISTS on making him do everyday things he would have been capable of twenty years ago. Perfect example, I came in the other day to find him trying to changing lightbulbs! (he has to use a walker) How can I explain to her, when she isn't in her right mind, that dad just can't do those things and its just dangerous?
