Grout between ceramics and hardwood?

Hello all, we are putting the finishing touches on a new house we have built for my father. He is in poor health (Parkinson's) and wheelchair bound, so we wanted floors with no transitions between them. We went to great lenghths to make our tile floors and hardwood the same height, including putting extra underlay under the hardwood to bring it up to the correct height. We have left about 3/16" to 1/4" space between the two floors, intending to grout in the space. We are now worried about movement, especially in the hardwood, and wonder if there are any tips that forum members could give us as to how best to fill this grout line. Thanks for any help, John.

Grout will crack in no time... Use a color matched caulk in that area... Any tile store, or even the local Evil Orange place will have them...

I'm with Alex, use a colored caulk for this joint. Grout will come out over time.
