With six parents (biological, step, and in laws) and 2 dependent brothers with mental disabilities and only one set of parents has other children that are capable of helping at all I have to say I can't exacatly plan. I was focused on getting 4 children launched. I don't know who will be healthy until 90 and who will have a stroke and need me for the next ten years. I know both sets of parents have attempted assisted living type situation for my husband's brother and my brother and have had no luck. This means our brothers live on our parents property. My brother in law in his own cute little cabin on my in laws property and my little brother with Down Syndrome on my dad's property. But it does add complication if they die. We can't afford to keep the big main house empty just to justify my brother or brother in law in their tiny little house but I'd feel terrible telling them to move soon after they lost their parents.
s/o Who do you expect to take care of your elderly relatives?
