There is no obligation for family members to support their elderly parents. Now that people are living so much longer we all have to do the best we can so we can support ourselves in our own old age. It is nearly impossible to support out children and then support our parents and then expect to have money left to support us after retirement. Having all the kids chip in isn't usually a good long-term-solution.
Medicare is the first source of aid to consider. The social worker will have other suggestions. If you can help your parents with getting aid for themselves, that will be a wonderful gift.
Can your parents find housing that is more affordable (and probably more senior friendly)? Can you and your sister help them with the sale and moving?
In general, unless children are very wealthy, they shouldn't be funding their parents' housing costs; they need to save for their own retirement.
