LTC Insurance Quote


My gram is in need of help. It is a long drawn out situation. Short stack is her grandson moved into her home two years ago, created a lease while she was in a therapy situation, and had his blind mother sign it. Gram tried to evict him and lost in court. She is 91 years young and would like only to be in her home and with her income. Her grandson pays nothing (he wrote the lease) and has now moved his girlfriend and her children into the house. He threw out some priceless antique furniture that belonged to Gram (she does not know about this). Additionally, he has his own home and rents it out. Please, is there someone out there that can help?
