My 95-year-old dad has a huge apartment and his caregiver and her 9-year-old daughter have been living with him for 3 years. The mom is very strict with her daughter, but caring with my stepdad, and they have a good relationship. Last week, I heard that Child Protective Services came and got the kid after the caregiver *burned* her intentionally with a hot fork. The mother said her daughter was being disrespectful and she was teaching her a lesson. Then Friday the police came and arrested the mom (I was not informed), leaving my dad unattended all day till I got home from work at 10pm. I've been calling replacement caregivers all day. About an hour ago, a friend of the mother called me and said she has made bail and will be out either tomorrow or Monday. But now, despite the good history till this incident, I am not sure I want her in here; if she can turn against her daughter, can she turn against my dad? However, all of her stuff is here. And her dog. How do I approach getting her out? I have power of attorney for my dad's affairs but how should I handle this? I have never seen any evidence of her being violent with him - and I do look; but this whole thing is so disconcerting. Should I give her a second chance or get rid of her? I am hearing all of these facts second hand, but I see online that she's been charged with 2nd degree Assault.
