A family in crisis over chores!

My MIL and her adult son and both disabled. Both are receiving social security for mental and physical aliments. My MIL claims that she cannot do any chores or barely move. For example she cannot clean,make her bed, do laundry,cook, or even wash herself when it comes to bending. Her adult son has to help her with all these things. My Brother in law is becoming very resentful. Even go as far as to yell at his mother that she is faking everything because she is lazy. I do think that it's a bit ridiculous that she needs her son who is 31 to wash her naked body in the shower and expect him to constantly help you off the toilet. I think that she needs a home care aide. A hire helper to come into her home everyday to do specific tasks. I am afraid that my brother in law will become violent. I feel it's time to inject myself into this because I am tired of the phone calls all the time and the constant arguing.
