My last resort was to get her into adult daycare to get her out of the house, but she pitched a fit this morning and refused to go. We do not have many relatives and the others in my family are just ignoring the situation so I am stuck trying to deal with it myself.
I think my parent's generation were more attached to their homes...it was the "American Dream" back then, so I see why your father may be reluctant to move. On the other hand, if the house is becoming a burden, it is best that they find new quarters.
I would suggest "planting seeds." Take your parents to visit a few apartments or get brochures. Talk about how much freedom they will have without having to take care of a house.
I know how you feel, it took me 2 years to talk my Mom into selling her house. Now she says, "why didn't I do this sooner?" She is now in an apt., with a beautiful view, and loves it.
