hello there. I joined TP today. My Grandad has dementia and recently moved into a care home. My Dad and Uncle have decided to sell his house as his care home is his new permanent residence. I'm sad that we have to start to empty his house in order to prepare it for being sold and I am not terribly comfortable with the idea of someone else living in his house that he once shared with my Grannie. I was wondering if any other young people (I'm 18) have experienced something like this this with their Grandparent and if they had any advice? :)

Welcome to TP :)

I think the way your feeling about the house is pretty common. I certainly felt the same way about my relatives houses.
