My girlfriend is a care provider for a 90 year old man. He is not a family member of hers. She takes care of him because his brother that died 3 years ago asked her to. He gave her his car, home, promises of cash rewards if she would look after his brother.
She put the car and the home in the 90 year old brothers name when the older brother died. She has never received any "cash rewards" for her efforts, even though there was a large amount of money left behind , in which one of the other siblings have control of. As it stands now, none of the siblings do anything out to help care for 90 year old brother. She is there about 20 hrs a day 24-7. She gets paid only for around 20 hrs a week! I myself spend a lot of time helping her. I do all the work on the car, house I pay for all parts, building materials and labor costs. This man needs 24 hr care and all the work on the home and care are necessary, ( damaged roof, floor, car breaking down, tow cost, etc,). His siblings refuse to help us care for their brother so we, my girlfriend mostly are stuck. Walking away and not helping this man is not a option. He was i 3 wars, was at pearl harbor when it got bombed. He deserves better and my girlfriend does too. What can we do? We have no more money, barely making it, but we cannot' abandon this man! It appears that he and we have no place to turn to for help
