I’ll be purchasing a home soon and be moving my parents in with me. Their house is old and they can no longer keep up maintenance etc with it. I’m not the only child, but them moving in with me is about the only option. They’re on a really limited budget and cannot afford to fix their old place nor can they afford rent somewhere. I have a BSN and vowed I would care for them. There will be adequate room, as I am single...but my dad is an absolute pack rat. Borderline hoarder could be said! How do I tell this man that I love and deeply respect that he is welcome in my home, just not with all the junk??! He’s really touchy about the subject too! My mom asked me to help him get something out of the storage shed and I was horrified by the amount of stuff in there! That’s not all of it either! Their house is cluttered with plastic storage tubs of miscellaneous useless crap. My mom is embarrassed by it all and she knows how I feel about the junk. I’m almost a minimalist! Clutter freaks me out! Help!!
