I am a caregiver for my boyfriend but not legally can I just leave? He is too difficult to deal with. He has alienated his family and has no one but me. I can't deal with the mental abuse too much more.
The hard part is over.
I'm matching you with one of our specialists who will be calling you in the next few minutes.
What is BF's disability? (Why does he need a caregiver?) Is he following a treatment plan?
I think that just walking out would be a bit harsh, but I do agree that you can't continue to accept abuse. Call Adult Protection Services and explain the situation. You are both vulnerable adults but living together is not working out. You are being abused. You don't wish him harm but you cannot continue to provide his care.
If you want him out of your house then that presents one set of problems different from your leaving.
While I agree there is a general feeling that a family is responsible for a relative it isn’t always that simple is it?
Regardless of living arrangements remember you are choosing to put up with the abuse. Choose again.
Give more information for better answers and come her to vent anytime you need to.
No, you are not legally obligated to care for him, but I don't think you want to put him out on the street either. Knowing the state you live in would help too.
