I would appreciate your help with my dilemma. My family and I moved to oz in 2008 but had to return to the uk in 2010 ( just short of 2years) as my parents fell ill and everything wasn't going as planned. My husband was just short of 5 weeks to get his citizenship before we left. We all have PR
that expire all on the same date in 2013. Unfortunately my mother died of cancer last year. We now live with my elderly father (80 yrs old)in England. He had a heart attack last year but has recovered well. He also has mild vascular dementia and is registered disabled. I am my fathers carer in the UK.
visas run out next year and don't know whether we will able to renew them. If we can't renew them would there be anyway to get a visa for my father to come and live with us in oz? He would be happy to move there with us. His doctor has said he would be able to manage the flight and move. He does have a another child but they do not speak and haven't done for years. He also has step children but they rarely contact him. None of the other relatives in the UK would be prepared to look after him. He depends on me for meals, drinks, medication and transport/outings. He is financially independent and owns his house. He really doesn't want to go in a nursing home/residental care and I wouldn't want him to have to do that while he is still has some wits about him and is happy. I promised my mother before she died that I would look after my dad.
It is a hard decision to make as my family and I are desperate to get back to oz as soon as possible but we want to care and keep my father happy until the end of his days. We wont leave the country without him. Any advice please?
Thank you : )
