No it does not mean you give up your British citizenship. You merely maintain 2 passports. I've had us citizenship since 2004 and still have uk citizenship

You might want to do a search on bringing elderly people over it's not a brilliant idea unless you are super super rich, medical care is expensive and insurance not always available.
Other than that you are free to be a dual national, and hold both US and UK passports, probably a good idea if you find yourself running back and forth to see to aging relatives, at least you know they'll let you back into the US even if you spend a long time in UK.

As far as the US is concerned, yes. As far as the UK is concerned, no.
