I work at a large IT firm. I have 55-60 hours workweek. However, my father just had a bad fall due to vertigo. My mother is going to have knee replacement surgery in a couple of weeks and need a least a month rehab. They are both 79-year old. My brother and sister live out of state, I'm really the only close by to help.
Given the demands and workload of my job, there is just no way I can attend to my parents right now. I am thinking of taking family leave..at least during my mother's rehab (about 6 weeks). How can I do that? I live in California.
