Your mother had died, leaving your father who can’t really care for himself.  Family relationships have been strained for years and none of your brothers or sisters wants to take responsibility for helping your father.  You really don’t want the responsibility either but you feel guilty.  He can’t really take care of his finances, healthcare needs and really shouldn’t be driving.  You’ve spoke to his doctor and conservatorship and guardianship was discussed.  Seems like a lot of responsibility, not sure whether you want to do this or not.  You wonder what the personal experiences of other family members are like regarding this subject.
