I care for an elderly friend 24/7. We recently had a visit from a medical social worker who had questions about her adult children, among other things. My friend proceeded to tell the SW that her daughter had her mortgage her house and does not pay, my friend does. Part of her medical issues is not having enough money to get medical care. When asked about her son, she told the SW he lives downstairs. He does not pay rent or contribute in any way. This too is costing her a lot in utilities, real estate tax (disqualified from tax relief) and groceries and unpaid various loans. Isn't this SW mandated to report this?
Just wondering if she'll get assistance with this problem, or does she have to come out and file a complaint herself? I know she'd never do that but I do feel she told the SW about this for a reason.
