If you mean for a new job at another company, legally you don't have to explain any such reason for leaving your last job. You can explain it was for family emergency but by law you don't have to disclose anything else to a prospective employer. Caring for a sick family member is a legitimate reason to explain an absence from the work force. It's much better than just having an employment gap on your resume. You may want to list "Personal Hiatus" as a job on your resume with the dates, and one line like "Cared for seriously ill family member." Most employers will view this as a positive. Just be sure to tell them the situation no longer requires your attention.
