What problems might you encounter having your 90-year-old parents live with you?

First - physical issues. Are you in an apartment? Is is

upstairs? If not, are either of your parents in a wheelchair? Are

your doors wide enough to accomodate one? Do you have handholds in

your shower or tub? Second - Privacy issues. Are your parents

willing to give up some of their privacy? Are you? Remember you'll

hear each others phone calls, see each others mail (at least the

envelopes). Are both of you ready for that? Third - Miscellaneous

issues. Do your parents expect you to entertain them? Do you expect

to? When you come home from work, will you watch your favorite TV

program or will they want to talk? Similar schedule issues can

arise if you are their means of transportation. Do they drive? If

not, will they look to you as their wheels? This is just a start .

. . Good Luck.
