My elderly father recently hurt himself in a fall and will by in a short term care home until he is able to rehab enough to come home. He was the sole care provider for my mother who has mild dementia , so my sister and I have been staying at their house to assume care for my mother. I am retired and my sister is adjusting her work schedule to help care for our mom. We have 2 other siblings who very little to care for my mother. They both work and have the excuse that they are busy and cannot adjust their schedules to assist much, so the majority of care falls on the shoulders of my sister and me. I'm sure this is not an unusual scenario.
Just curious how others have dealt with this situation. My sister and I would like more support from them. Someone suggested that we use financial motivation by putting a dollar value on our time and have it taken out of their estate before the rest of their assets are disbursed to all siblings. My sister and I don't care about the money, but that might motivate or siblings to participate more...sad picture of our family.
