I have one brother and four step siblings. My folks moved to my town three years ago to be closer to me and my husband. A year ago my Mom was diagnosed with Alz and is now in the advanced stage. I go over to their house, which is down the street, every day and am there within 5 minutes any time they call. My frustration is that none of my siblings give them the time of day. They call only once a month and rarely come to see them even though it is within a days drive. I have changed my life to be apart of my folks lives as they approach the end of their life and just can't understand how the other siblings can be so negletful. My brother just cancelled a trip to see Mom and it will be months before he can come. I understand but they just took an expensive vacation so I am very miffed over it. If anyone can shed some light on this that I'm just not seeing I would appreciate it.
