My companion had terminal cancer and lived with me. I took care of him in every way until the day he died. His family did not help when I asked for help. When I asked for in home care for nights so I could get some rest, it was refused. They also refused to send him to a nursing care facility. My companion had a cancer policy that the executive promised his father as well as to me that I would receive it when the insurance claim was paid for all the care that I provided to my companion. That claim will be paid to the estate so I don't think I will ever see a dime, but can I at least be awarded what in home assistance care would have charged for service if the executive had hired them to come into my home to help me at night?He was my companion for 16 years & I am a woman & i worked for him 14 years. My companion had a will & revocable trust. I was not named as a beneficiary on the cancer policy. I was understanding that the trust or will would not go to probate or be contested.
