My husband and I moved in to help his parents in 2007. Ever since then it has been nothing but verbal and emotional abuse. We can no longer care for them physically, emotionally or financially. My brother in laws are never around to help. One comes every once in a while to visit but never with his kid or his wife unless it is a holiday and the other only comes when his wife makes him other wise he is never around, which is good because he drinks and is also verbally abusive. We got to the point were we needed in home health care so my sister in law took over all the paper work, lied about a lot of stuff and is now getting paid to come in to help out. She is rarely here yet she gets paid. we don't know how to handle this and need to leave because we can't do it anymore and it is killing us. We get yelled at by his family every time we ask for help or say we need to move out and we have had enough. we have no support from anyone except our friends and my family. What should we do? Will we get charged for abandonment if we have to leave for our own health and safety? We are also afraid that his family are going to go after us for elder abuse, when his parents refuse proper care and we can't get them to try. They smoke heavily around an oxygen tank and verbally yell at each other and us and his parents are gossipers. love to lie and tell stories to make them look good and us look bad. No one knows who to believe anymore. I call my family everyday crying and when every we want to visit them we get yelled at. We are completely lost and don't know what to do. Please help us.
