My parents are US Permanent Residents since 2014.  However, they had to travel to Chile to take care of some legal issues in September 2015.  Unfortunately, my dad who is 80 years old got very sick In Chile and the Dr recommends not to risk his health by traveling back to the United States, because he is very weak and fragile and could possibly not resist a 10 hour flight.  They were planning on being back in January 2017, but that doesn't seem very realistic considering he is so sick.  My question and concern is since they are permanent residents of the United States and won't be able to come back home for while - will they lose their residency? How can we go about extending it for a longer period of time? Please, if someone knows advise on this forum, it will be greatly appreciated.  Thank You
