Long distance major caregiver
I am a 17-hour drive from my parents and I am the executor of their will and main person on their living wills. I am the first to show up at their sides when they need help. My Mother has alzheimers and my Dad had bypass surgery 10 years ago. He is her main caretaker. I have two siblings who live in my hometown and two who live 200 miles from them. Of the two siblings in my hometown, one of them always jumps up to help. The other is always too busy with their family and their family is too busy also. My Mom is having surgery next month, I will be home (minimally) for two weeks to live-in to take care of Mom and help Dad with anything he may need after her surgery but still my siblings flat out refuse to help them day-to-day. Any suggestions? I have talked to them repeatedly. It doesn't seem to help. - Out of Answers Down South.
