Sorry for your troubles.

This is not of your making.  While you may wish to keep active credit, the need for continuous care makes that impossible.  Notify the credit card (and any other creditors) of your health conditions and express your regrets that circumstances prevent  you from doing anything further to resolve the situation.   Then, should they attempt collections after you are in the care facility, reject them.  There may even be a caseworker in the home in case some creditor may try harassment techniques, which they are forbidden to do.

Sorry it's not a miracle, but your health care is far more important than a credit card.
