The third hypothetical is based on a single parent who has been estranged from his children.  Kevin is seventy-five years old.  He is from North Carolina and he has an adequate amount of retirement and pension funds.  Kevin is divorced and has three children from his first and only marriage.  Kevin has recently fallen and broken his hip.  He needs rehabilitation services and possibly needs long term care.  One of Kevin’s sons, Jake, has offered to help his father.  Kevin is concerned that Jake is only helping him, so that he can get access to Kevin’s money.  Kevin accepts Jakes help, but does not necessarily trust Jake.
