Live-in caregiver refuses to leave when unable to work; a nanny case, but could apply to eldercare (in CA)


A case of a live-in nanny hired to take care of children may have significance for people who hire live-ins as caregivers for the elderly, too.
  
Sarah Figalora reports a case in California of a live-in who became unable to work and was asked to leavr but has refused.  Eviction would follow civil procedures similar to those for roomers or apartment leases, apparently.  The link for the story is here. The possibility could exist that a live-in caring for an elder person would become unable to work, but possibly have the right to stay.  

The caregiver in this case  was reported to have behaved as a "vexatious litigant" but this could happen with eldercare when hiring a live-in directly in some states.
