How do we get rid of an unstable family member living with our 86 year old mother?
My brother moved in with my mother about 3 years ago after losing his house, job, etc. and has mooched off my other since. Mother is increasingly insecure and welcomes the company in exchange for countless examples of being used and emotionally abused by my brother. The other siblings had been faithfully and lovingly caring for Mother on a daily basis, with no expectations of compensation except for her love. Brother pays no rent, utilities, only some groceries, and cooks some meals. He had two jobs since moving in, both which (assumed) earn 6 figures. Still no payment of any kind.
Mother won't evict the mooch for fear of lonliness. The rest of us sibs visit daily and stay overnight, which we had been doing before. Mom was never alone at night. How do we get rid of the mooch and get our Mother back?
