Hi all - My 75 yo mother has invited her friend’s homeless son, daughter in law and 3 children to live with her. I do not know these people. My mom is overly trusting. They couple is not legally married. My mom historically would not have approved of such a relationship. The “wife” has an outstanding traffic warrant. The elders of my mom’s church have advised her NOT to let these people move in. The dad of the “husband” also advised her against this.
My mom has historically been overly cautious - even going as far as unplugging all electrical items when she leaves the house. So this new behavior is concerning. She is more concerned about the 3 children being safe. Supposedly everyone is aware this situation is only temporary, but there is no definite timeline. The couple is on a waiting list for an apartment.
I dont want want to have children on the street, but elderly can be easy targets for fraud.
I could persue having her declared incompetent ( not really sure that is accurate though ), but I think she would feel betrayed. She also hid this from me for a month. Not really sure what to do.
