My 88 year old father wants to buy a new car. The car he has now, he put in my name and it is insured under my name. He can not drive. His reaction time is too slow. I'm not sure if it's the driving thing, but the whole "buying" a new car is just not necessary. And I feel that we should save his money for the future in case I need to hire nursing care. I just can't seem to get that through to him! How do I convince him that the car he has is great and we need to watch his spending???? I realize it's his money. And I do not want any of it. Still... what if I do have to put him in assisted living? I don't want to, but I know that there may be a day that I just won't physically be able to take care of him on my own. He wants me to take him THIS Wednesday to go look for a car.
