Who is legally responsible for a dependant parent, if no one has legally signed off responsibility?

I disowned my father well over 26 years ago. None of my 7 siblings want anything to do with him either. He was very abusive in every way possible and we all walked away when my mom finally left him. He was placed in a retirement home a few years ago and my eldest sibling feels that he is responsible for the man solely because he is the eldest child. Is that true or are all of us because we did not go about signing off legally through a lawyer?

    OMG! @jenniferlynn78 Thank you so much. This is the best news I have heard in such a long time. He definitely was not a good parent in ANY sense of the word.
