Legal Question in Family Law in Texas

My sister & I were raised by a family friend. For me, from age 2 to adulthood. For my sister, from age 8 mo. to adulthood. To us they are mom and dad. My mother deceased in 1994. My father has since remarried and is now in a nursing home with Alzheimers. Do we have any legal rights regarding his care if he never adopted me or my sister?
