What if this man was an old S O B that never cared for anyone, was a narcissist, racist or any other "ist" you can think of and his relatives were just tired of his B S. My point is we know absolutely nothing about this case.....

Some elderly have either few or no relatives available to help them out, or the relatives they do have can't afford to pay $10,000 a month for a care home. Or, the elderly person simply flat-out refuses to go to a care home. Of course, we also have situations where the family is pocketing the elderly person's social security and retirement, then doing nothing to help them in return. But we don't know all the facts in this case.
