What should older adults do when someone moves into their home or apartment and begins to make them feel unsafe and vulnerable, whether physically, financially or psychologically? What if these individuals won't leave?  

This problem, known as a “home takeover” can range in severity from theft to serious assault and often involves a relationship with family members or even drug dealers who take advantage of the legitimate tenant's vulnerabilities and always render older adults feeling uncomfortable or losing their own home.
