residential vct problem

My very elderly father installed Armstrong VCT in his home expecting it to be easier to maintain than the carpet which was there. Three coats of the Armstrong sealer were applied when it was new a year ago. Since then it has been swept and damp mopped only. It got terribly dirty and hard for him to maintain. This week I stripped, resealed with the Armstrong product, and buffed the floor with a rented commercial machine. (almost killed me!) It looked beautiful. But today I was there, and already scuffs are apparent, and when I wiped up his spilled coffee I could see where the drips had been. He cannot afford to hire professional floor care help. Is there a finish available to a homeowner I can apply that is tougher and lower maintenance than what is on it? Someone told me I can use a polyurethane finish, but I'm very hesitant because if it doesn't work, I've got a really hard to correct mess. And it's light blue, so yellowing would be very apparent. We need some practical advice for something this willing, but unskilled daughter can do.
