It could be a good thing. When my father had open heart surgery my DH and I bought a house with a mother-in-law's apartment and moved my parents in. Now my mother is also having medical problems, so I run both around to DRs in betweeen caring for my 2 boys. When Hurricane Katrina was due to hit, we live in the suburbs of New Orleans, my father decided he didn't want to leave and this made for all kinds of trouble... I had to laugh though when DH told dad ,"You live under my roof, so it's my rules.Now get itn the car!" Thank goodness he listened because we were evacuated for almost 5 months. Taking care of your parents is sometimes worst than raising kids.
