He insists on helping us...
As everyone knows, my husband and I have purchased a new home. We will be moving in late September.
My husband does not want to hire movers this time. He will have one of my brothers to help him.
My father and I are close. He's a very caring and encouraging parent. He wants to help us move. Since my father is 64 years old and suffers from hypertension as well as arthritis, my husband and I do not want him to help us move all of our belongings. We think that my father is too old to be moving heavy objects. We just want our poor old man to take it easy.
Stubborn is my father's middle name because he insists on helping us. My husband and I think that my father's determined attitude towards assisting our move is very kind but we still don't want him to feel pain.
How do you deal with older relatives who do not want to be mindful of their health issues?
