Difficult to answer: Family dynamics are often difficult when a family member is suffering and you want to intervene without any medicolegal right to demand anything. You would probably be best to gently suggest to your brother or sister in law that a dr. May be able to help. If you feel extra generous, you may even offer to help with the cost for the visit. Good luck!
