(First, many of you know I am the primary caregiver for my MIL & FIL. I recently went home to visit my mother and found out about my grandmother). My grandmother lives in a house my mother and uncle own rent free. Her only bill is the utility bill. She receives food stamps and social security. She is a bitter, mean woman that I will never allow my children around. Right now she is mad at my mom and uncle for not signing over the house (it was my grandfather's house! Her EX husband) so she can get a reverse mortgage on it. Recently, she has started talking to "random" people on the phone who are telling her she has won (The lottery and a car) . 3 times we have changed her bank account and phone number, she keeps giving it out! Because she keeps mailing them money and giving them her bank info, she has no money for her utility bill and food. She is bleeding my family dry. Other than this she is fine. No illness, no dementia just bat crazy. She honestly believes she won or can talk these people into giving her money. She thinks one guy is going to date her from Florida!
I've told my mom to call Adult protective services, but when they come visit she is a sweet grandmother (never in my life has she been! )
