My sister-in-law took in my elderly father-in-law several years ago.

Make sure SIL keeps copious documentation of her initial investment. If lookback time does come she may be able to protect that if she can prove it. OTOH, it might be in her best interest to sell the house now and get her share while she can. Unless an aversion to seeking professional help runs in the family, it might behoove her to talk to a lawyer now, before she puts more money into the place.
