Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
Your neighbor is not entitled to payment for any services absent some written agreement to pay for taking care of him. Under NV law, any payment to anyone for such services must be based on agreement of the parties. So if there was no agreement of the brother to pay for him to help care for him, the courts will not only not order payment, but will order the person removed from his care and placed in a facility under legal guardianship.
