The Moneyist: I take care of my father — shouldn’t he leave his estate to me instead of my sister?

Dear Moneyist,

I’m hoping you can help, if not with advice and practical change, with developing perspective. I live in Massachusetts. I’m middle-aged, disabled, and have two kids. One is in middle school, the other is an adult, but not fully launched.

I moved in with my father after my mother died. He cannot live alone safely. I live “rent free,” but pay utilities, buy the groceries, pay the cleaners and yard man. I also have underwritten a great deal of travel for my dad.

I also cook all of his meals, do the shopping and errands, drive him to appointments, take him to see his friends, and run his small business.
