I also have a problem with my brother. I live 2 hours away from our parents -- he lives only 20 minutes and works a mere 10 minutes away. Yet, he only comes by in a crisis (only a BIG crisis) or if he needs something from dad. He wrote mom off a long time ago. Mom has Parkinson's and is very seldom lucid. Every so often I see mom inside. Sometimes she'll look at me and smile, squeeze my daughter's hand. It happens maybe once or twice a visit, sometimes not at all. My brother refuses to believe any of mom is left. It breaks dad's heart. He does not know my brother feels this way and I will not tell him. It does my dad good to see me concerned over mom and visiting mom, even though I doubt she knows I'm there. I just can't make my brother understand. Just do it for dad!
