How to indicate that a parent is physically or mentally infirm?

In Profile's online help, it says: 

"Is the dependent mentally or physically infirm?

When you select "Yes" in the disability amount field, the answer to this field automatically becomes "Yes" and the text color turns blue, because a person with a disability is by nature mentally or physically infirm. However, if you select "No" in the disability amount field, you can still indicate that a person is mentally or physically infirm."

In this case, the parent is physically infirm. He is on a wheelchair and is in the process of applying for DTC. Both returns are linked (father added as dependent). Where do we indicate that the parent is physically or mentally infirm? In the Dependent form for the the son or one of the parent's forms? The "Mentally or Physically Infirm" field in the Dependent form for the son is not letting me to override. Can someone please walk me through the steps? Truly appreciated for your help.

People come to ProFile for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
