Me: Did you talk to your mom and dad about moving into assisted living?
Primo: They didn't want to talk about it. They don't want to face that they can't stay in the house much longer. They get takeout instead of cooking. My dad can hardly walk.
Me: What is their plan?
Primo: They know they have to be ready to look by next year when Stephanie and the kids move [away from the state].
Me: Not just ready to look but ready to move.
Primo: Yes. But I might have to help them do the research.
Me: How hard is it to do the research? You identify the assisted living places near you. You call and ask for information. You visit. You decide on the criteria that are important to you and evaluate each place on that criteria. Then you make a decision.
Primo: You're right.
Me: I hope they understand that having you do all of this is not an option.
