When an elderly parent moves in, it brings many changes to both lives. If you are planning to have your parent come live with you, try to plan out the finances ahead of time. Preplanning for the new living arrangement can make it easier for everyone to transition:
If your parent must leave her own home to live with you, she might have a certain amount of medical costs to cover. Whether you need to hire a caregiver while you work or request a part-time nurse to check on your parent, you need to consider these costs, which can add up quickly. Take a look at your parent’s finances and insurance policies to see how to handle these costs.
When someone else moves into your home, you can expect a difference in your living costs. From buying more food to using more electricity, this move will likely raise some of your bills. Be prepared for these extra charges by planning out a new budget ahead of time.
To ease the transition from her house to yours, you should hire a moving company to transport her belongings. You might also want to consider a self-storage facility where you can place the majority of your parent’s belongings if you do not have room for them in your own house. Hiring movers gives you the opportunity to clean out your parent’s house and give away belongings that no one wants.
