My parent and step are both in their 80's. Step has had Alzheimer's for approximately 7 years. They live independently at the moment but I can see that step will be needing assisted living in the near future. Step-siblings are almost insisting that they go someplace together. My parent is very independent and even if they are ready for a new place to live parent does not need Assisted Living. I think it's unreasonable and somewhat pushy for them to not consider the needs of both parents. I also think they're aren't accepting the reality of their parents' future. As it is right now, my parent is overwhelmed with taking care of spouse and contemplating all of the future decisions. All of us children live out-of-town so it's not like we can take turns helping them. How can I talk to my step-siblings without losing it and still be an advocate for my parent?
