My wife and I took in her aging mother to live with us over 2 years ago. My wife has 2 brothers and 1 sister who all live within 2 miles of us. Brother 1 has 2 high school, kids and only visits his mother in our home approximately twice a week for about 15 minutes each. Brother 2 has 2 grade school and one high school children, who does take his mother to church regularly and dinner thereafter. My sister in law, an RN, visits maybe once every two weeks for about a half hour.
First let me say. I have no problem at all or in anyway with my mother inlaw staying with us. Although she is not always easy to live with, she really has no other alternative then to stay with us. We have one high school child
The issue is the total lack of support from my 2 brother in laws and sister in law. Never have any of them gotten them to doctors appts, hair dresser appts or anything outside of what I described above. I have communicated my displeasure with this on numerous occasions, yet, nothing changes
It seems anytime we ask them to do something for their mother they all state that have other plans or are too busy.
Any suggestions or helpful insight would be greatly appreciated. I am about at my wits end.
Thanks in advance.
