Sick parents can they migrate?

Hi

I'm originally from UK but have been a citizen for over 15 years, my 3 children were all born here. I have 1 sister also here as a permanent resident for almost 10 years and we live on Sunshine Coast, Qld, we have 1 other sister still living in the UK.

Our parents retired to Cyprus and are now 70, but are both are getting very sick. My mum has lung & liver cancer which can't be cured she's had 2 x 3 months rounds of chemo in last 12 months and its not getting bigger but not reducing much either, and my dad has serious lung and heart conditions.

They don't want to go back to UK due to the cold weather and cost of living, but within next 6-12 months they will have to move closer to family.

Not sure they would make a flight back here but just wondered is there any chance at all we could get them a visa to live here so we can care for them most likely a aged care facillty and is there any chance they would qualify for medicare?

Unfortunately the answer to all your questions would be no, with the exception of Medicare which may be available on a reciprocal basis from the UK

Here is a link to the offical information page.
