How should I ease myself out of the family conflict?

My father is the only caretaker of my grandparents (father's side). My father's two younger siblings (my uncle and aunt) are having a huge fight with my father due to my grandmother's illness.
My father, as a sole guardian of my grandmother at the hospital, wants to bring back her health at all cost. My aunt said something like "Forget the treatments. She needs to be in a retirement home until she rests in peace." that upset my father. My uncle does not want to give any supportive money to the treatment which also offended my father. This has generated a huge mistrust, shock and conflict among my father's siblings.
This has made an extremely depressing situation both for my dad and me. So far, my father has never been eating food for a week now. My father is a divorcee so he has no one to lean on except for his son (me) who lives very far away from him.
I'm worrying about everybody right now? How can I handle this situation?
