Dear Karen, a younger woman has moved in with my father and I’m worried.

My father is in his late sixties and he has 70 acres and the farmhouse. It’s not great land and it has been rented on a lease to a neighbour for the past five years.

My mother died a few years ago and myself and my siblings, four of us in total, have all moved out of the family home over the years. About two years ago my father started going to social dances in a local town with a friend of his and he met a woman at one of these dances.
