Your situation is a little tricky because the details will make all the difference in the outcome. When a person goes into assisted living the assisted living provider is entitled to payment through the assets that belong to your grandfather. HOWEVER, there are many different forms of trusts. That being there are specific forms of trusts that protect those assets, such as a house, for the beneficiary (which in this case is you). Depending on the type of trust your uncle may have violated the terms of the trust with his actions.
Do you have a copy of the trust?
I am very happy to hear that you have a copy. Can you attach a copy so I can review a copy and we can discuss what kind of trust we are dealing with and what options may be available to you?
