    Default Re: Parent's Rights for a Married Adult Child Who is Disabled

    Assuming that they were not granted power of attorney or a healthcare proxy, their rights are going to be pretty much limited to what is allowed by the child's spouse.

    If the spouse is not in the picture or is providing inadequate care, the parents may need to seek guardianship.
