    Sorry to hear about the imbalance with your sister in regard to helping your parents. My suggestion - be direct with your sister and remind her everyone is busy and we all value our time. One thought - if she has more financial resources than you - ask her to help more with getting other sources of care for your parents. in my case - my parents lived far from both my sister and I. She had more schedule flexibility to visit them - while I dealt more with their financial situation and contributed more money to helping them. It needs to be team effort. I would start scheduling a weekly call to discuss their situation. she needs to be actively
    involved - even if it means a guilt trip. I know its a very stressful situation. But do not let it be a "trigger." you will only regret it. Hang in there man! good luck!
