I am 50 years old extremely disabled physically and mentally stressed, about to be on hospice. My main question is am I classified as a depedant adult in the state of CA? I have a full time caregiver and bedbound. Second question. My 62 year old roommate has a rather guilt free five finger discount habit. Nothing of monetary value but annoying things like my food for the upcoming week, a tube of toothpaste, 20.00. I found out that the only way to evict her is to make a police report per incident then take those to the landlord and ask him to initiate eviction proceedings. A police report over each piece of fried chicken. Okay....) . She also makes comments that she wants to hold a garage sale with my stuff when I am dead and she has no authority to do that. I have a will and everything goes to mate spouses family. I find all of this to be emotionally abusive and disrespectful. She was supposed to be moving out in September or October to stay with her daughter but got drunk one too many times and daughter said no. Which is good for the daughter but sucks for me. I am sick of her s%#@ and looking for a place but the reality is I am dying, there is a housing shortage, I am on a fixed income, etc etc. If I am a depandant adult and she winds up continuing along these lines it will be easier to get her out. Thanks...

Who is going to be with youb24/7? Because hospice won't be. Maybe you can make friends aware of roommates ideas so somebody can be there to make sure none of your personal items are taken.

Are you in a Care Home or other type of facility? Are you on Medicaid or Medi-Cal? Who put you together with this roommate? Is your caregiver there 24/7 and witnessing your roommate’s “misbehavior”? Is your caregiver from an agency or a family member? If they’re from an an agency, speak very frankly with them about this roommate. Or, ask to speak with the director of the agency. Ask if you can go to a Hospice Facility.

Do you have involvement with the state? In theory, if you are a ward of the state you would have had a court hearing and have a social worker checking in on you.
