Ok - I have been living with my 85 year old aunt for five years now. We get along, I have been helping her since she had her stroke and before that. A few months ago she asked me to see her attorney because she wanted to leave me the house, ( an old family home, long paid for.) I was touched, moved- it was so sweet. I met the attorney, discussed my life etc. and then - nothing. Now, I hear weekly " I can't leave you this house.." or " how are you going to pay for this house?" and more, about the house. I ran into the attorney, and asked and he said he can't discuss this. So, now I don't know. I wasn't fishing for this, I enjoy living in the family home, and care taking my aunt, ( I currently pay the bills, talk to doctors, hire help etc…) My question is how to bring up such a delicate subject. It leaves me with uncertainty about my own future. When the comments come about the house, I usually respond with, " you know I want to stay in this home, I love it here…I will make it work, don't worry about me." Am I wrong to ask to see some kind of documentation either way? Because I need to plan out my future…and I feel selfish…like most care takers.
