     Mom is 83, diabetic, depends, walker etc. Dad is 84, mild to moderate dementia but still driving. (For now) I am 60' last living child and 600 miles away. I have been making regular trips and caregiving for weeks at a time. I just retired so I am able to deal with all the issues and needs from home. Thank god my parents gave me a very broad POA a few years ago. It would be impossible now .
