My mom is 60, and her husband is 65. They've been married for 4 years. Long story short, she is unemployed and has been most of my life, and her husband supports them with a job that is very physically demanding. He's recently had some serious health issues arise, which I worry will require him to quit his current position soon or result in him being unable to work at some point within the next 5 years. If that happens, they will be left utterly destitute, with no savings, retirement, health insurance, etc. and significant debts. As an only child, I feel obligated to help them if I am able. What resources are available for older people, especially those with health problems, in this type of situation? I know my husband and I could provide some support, but with five kids of our own, we are not in a position to financially support them completely.
