Ok, here is the collection I have created using Angie’s travel capsule as a template. I have only 3 dresses, so I added 2 more skrts and 2 tops instead of 2 dresses. I will also add at least one pair of shorts, one swimsuit and 2 pajamas. How does it look? Is it too much? Am I missing something?
And here is also weather for my first week there.

I'd echo what the others have said about the emotional aspect of the trip, so I would give priority to packing what makes you feel "good" about yourself. Who says that you can't clean or sort in a nice outfit? Borrow old clothes from your parents for the really dirty jobs.
You may find that the business type of meetings take longer and are more draining that you think. You may find that you have to act as your parents advocate and in dealing with not- too-helpful bankers, doctors etc, if you feel confident and pulled together, you have more energy to push for what you know is right for your parents. Good Luck!
If the last leg of your journey is the most variable, could you perhaps ship some of the items you needed for that ahead of time (to save some luggage space)?
I like the idea someone else mentioned, of posting the no-longer-needed leftovers back to yourself once you're done with them.
You’ve already received great advice, and I have nothing valuable to add to the packing question. But just a virtual hug ahead of your trip. Be gentle with yourself :). Safe travels!
I think your proposed items are perfect. The only item I would discard is the red denim jacket, no need to double up, if space is an issue.
Your bases look well covered. Boy looks like the weather will be hot!
