GGGRRR so sad, but there is nothing that you can do. any chance that they can get a SUV now?ohjodi wrote: ↑Sat May 04, 2019 4:30 pmWhen parents (now 77 yrs old) were buying a new-ish car four years ago, I BEGGED them to get a mini-van. They're older, my dad is very tall (and newer sedans aren't roomy like they were 20+ years ago), he had a bad hip, foot, and back.........and they were going to now be raising three teenage grand kids, two of whom are very tall, also.
But no, no. They bought a sedan, and from day one it's been trouble for them. He's had hip surgery, needs foot surgery, they have to ask a neighbor to take them to and from the dr sometimes. Plus the kids and their gear won't fit.
Just like 15 years ago when i told them, repeatedly since then, to install a bathroom, and maybe a small bedroom, on the 1st floor of their ancient farmhouse, so they wouldn't have to basically turn the livingroom into a bedroom, and nobody would have to do their business in a bucket toilet chair if either of them got sick or had hip surgery, etc and couldn't get up the stairs.....just like grandma had to.
Well, GUESS WHAT. lol
Too late for a downstairs bathroom?
I'm assuming that they won't put in a "stair lift" to make it easier to get up the stairs? Because of the stair lift we have been able to stay in our house.
