I have carefully reviewed your post. However, I did not see a question. What is your question?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Now the man can't talk and they fired me and are trying to throw me out do I have any right if so what are they
Expert:  Phillips Esq. replied 1 year ago.

Thank you for the information.

Yes, you do have rights. They cannot force you out without a Court Order. If and when they file eviction case against you, you would defend the eviction case by showing that you were promised a place to stay in exchange for taking care of the person; that you quit your job to live there based on this promise. That you relied on the promise to your detriment and so, the Court should not allow them to evict you.
