My adult daughter accuses me of over-reacting to her constant verbal abuse. She is my caregiver living in my apt, approved by mgmt. She lives here for free but never has been a caregiver for me. How can I get her & 3 kids to move out ASAP so I can live peacefully?

Not sure if changing the locks and putting her clothes in the hall is legal. I think contacting the Landlord is your best bet. He Okd her living there because she was suppose to help. Even a two bedroom apartment is too small for five people. He can give her an eviction notice. You may be able to get an aide thru Medicaid or Ur Office of Aging.

How old are the children? Was their moving in to your home also approved by the management? And how long has this been the arrangement?

If your daughter is supposed to be living there as your caregiver or assistant, and in fact isn't fulfilling that role and is making your life more difficult, could anyone in the apartment management team act as your advocate in helping you to get this situation resolved? It does sound as if you're in a vulnerable position which is painful to think about.

Nobody should have to endure verbal abuse, or abuse of any kind. Actually, I think it's called "elder abuse" and in some cases considered against the law. I am sorry that she has not been a caregiver to you. So, what do you do? I suggest contacting your local Area On Aging for options on how to get her removed from your home. Or, contact your landlord for suggestions. If her name is not on the lease, I don't think she has any legal claim to remain in the apartment. If the terms of your original agreement have been broken (that she be the caregiver in return for free rent), then I hope your landlord can suggest what next steps you can take. Last, this is for drastic measures, but you could always ask for the locks to be changed and have her belongings packed up in the hallway when she returns. if her behavior becomes vindictive or worse, you can have a restraining order against her...but let's hope it doesn't come to that.
