How do I deal with family members mooching off of my grandmother?
My 92 year old mother in law was promised by her granddaughter and daughter in law they would take care of her provided she deed her home to the granddaughter. They promised her that she would never have to go to a nursing home. They also talk her into dropping her long term care insurance that she had been paying for the last 20 years. My husband does not stop this even though he has Durable Power of Attorney for his mother. Three months after the deed was transferred to the granddaughter she decided she could no longer care for her grandmother. I was furious about this whole scenerio and urged my husband to stop what was happening, and it you can believe this, he's a Judge. He goes along with whatever his mother want and now her care has become our (his) responsibility. Every chance his family gets, they are hitting his mother up for money, which is doled out gladly even though they never visit her, assist her, or call her. So my discussion title fits this perfectly, my hubby is stupid, his family is greedy, and his mother is stubborn. I really want to separate myself from this whole mess, but keep getting sucked back in. I'm very discouraged.
