How do you legally inform the proper people that you will not be taking care of a person anymore? Since my boyfriends father died, i have no obligation to care for his mother. I do not like her at all. Yesterday, she told his sister she didnt like me and told him and i if we didnt break up she would kill herself. I can avoid her but my name is on documents with doctors and social workers that i provide care. How do i make sure all of these people understand, i will do nothing...no wood in wood burning stove, cooking, shopping, medications, pick her up when she falls. I already let my cpr and first aid certifications expire so im not obligated to help if anything happens. Is verbal authorization okay or is it something that i should send to people notarized and cerified mail?
