I've 'composed' it myself from 'bits and pieces' of the journalistic parlance.

tkacka15as has bedrock support for his ageing parents.

The reason I asked is because the above part can be interpreted in two ways:

as has bedrock support (been important) for his ageing parents

or

as has bedrock support for his ageing parents (been important to him)

However, I suppose the broader context should clarify it.
