You could try to sneak the help in a little at a time. Find out when fil has one of his next apts and make a hair dressers apt for mil. Tell dad she's busy n you have to take him.
Next time ur over there chk out her shopping needs/stores. Make a list n bring the stuff over.
If u just step up n do it a little at a time they'll get used to it.
See laundry in the hamper....do it. Dishes in the sink...wash em. Crumbs on the floor....vacuum. Ur fil may have a few words for ya but ur mil will be greatful. He'll get used to it.
Short of getting thrown out of the house, what have u got to lose by trying?

Good luck
