We reside 200 miles from them and we are the closest children. We went to the extent of finding in-home help, we set up with their doctor for nursing home referral with orders for the items that they wanted. We set up meetings with home health assistance. While we were there, the parents seemed to be in favor of our efforts. As soon as the situation stabilized and we left for our home, they stopped all assistance that we set up for them. Cost was not a factor for them. The only option they seem to wish to consider is for us to sell our home and move to their location. due to health issue for us, this cannot happen.
