I Made My Elderly Parents Choose between Living in My Garage and a Nursing Home

In a Reddit post, a woman shared her experience after agreeing to have her parents move in with her.

She lived in a five-bedroom house, but with children moved out, she converted some rooms into offices and hobby spaces. She created a guest house in the garage for her children’s visits. When her parents asked to move in, she agreed, but the situation turned complicated.

Despite clarifying that her parents would live in the guest house, her children assumed they’d move into the main house with five bedrooms. On moving day, her parents were upset about living in the garage.

The woman, surprised by their reaction, stood firm, saying they had no choice but to live there. Some Reddit users sympathized, while others suggested clear communication from the start or setting boundaries with occasional visits to the main house.
