Even the most well-prepared caregiver needs assistance and reinforcements from time to time. If one’s siblings cannot be physically present, they should be able to help financially, with paperwork or in some other remote capacity. They should do something, but they often don’t.

They assume that the brother or sister who’s closest has things under control, and they don’t have a clue about how much time, effort, and sacrifice are involved in caregiving.
