Unsure How to Help My Family

by Chris
(England)

My sister has been disabled and in a wheelchair for 39 years with Multiple Sclerosis. Her husband has been her main carer with some outside support for the last 20 years but whether because of his situation or an underlying condition he is suffering from mental illness. His 92 year old mother has now come to live with them because she can no longer look after herself and his sister has washed his hands of her mum.


This is causing arguments and jealousy from my sister and he is threatening to make my sister leave.

I seem to be the go to person for both my sister and brother in law but I am at a point where I don't know how to help either of them.

Has anyone else experienced this problem or can anyone give me any advice or examples of how they solved their situation amicably.
