My mother-in-law passed away a year ago. After her mother’s death, her father-in-law remained alone in that house, although we did not advise him to move in.
Earlier this year, after an illness, my father agreed to go to the city with my wife and I. Because we want to make up for it, my husband and I often take him to luxurious places to eat and travel. Dad doesn’t have to do housework because he already has helper.
After living together for two months, my father-in-law asked to come nursing home live. In peace, my father had such an idea, of course we objected. But then Dad refused to eat or drink, all day he carried a chair to sit on the balcony. I was afraid that over time, my father-in-law would have a mental illness, so I convinced him to please him.
After Dad entered the nursing home, we still visited him on weekends. People look at it and think it must be because my husband and I don’t treat my father well. Therefore, in order to make Dad comfortable, we had to endure a lot of scrutiny from the outside.
I went to visit my friend the other day just gave birth. Her house is near a nursing home, so by the way, I stopped by to visit her father. When I got there, I saw my father talking to a roommate:
“To tell you the truth, my children are very filial. It’s just that now that I’m old and weak, let my children take care of me from meals to sleep while they are busy making money outside, I can’t bear it at all.”
When my father said that, my tears kept flowing. For fear of the children’s trouble, did the father take the initiative to go to a nursing home? I’m trying to convince my dad to come back. In your opinion, which option will be best for dad?
