Trumbull Man Evicting 98-Year-Old Mother From Her Fairfield Home

Peter Kantorowski, 71, says he’s only trying to help his 98-year-old mother, who lives alone, by evicting her, according to an Associated Press report.

A Trumbull man’s unusual legal battle to evict his 98-year-old mother from her Fairfield home has thrust the family into the media spotlight.

Peter Kantorowski, 71, says he’s only trying to help his 98-year-old mother, who lives alone, by evicting her. He says he wants to get her into a nursing home, or have her come live with him, because he's concerned about the quality of her care. Problem is his mother, Mary Kantorowski, is refusing to leave the small yellow cape she's been in since 1953.

According to an Associated Press report, Peter Kantorowski became the owner of the home several years ago when his mother transferred the deed to him, but retained the right to live there through a quit claim. He reportedly served his mother with an eviction notice in December, shortly before her 98th birthday, after several failed attempts to persuade her to move out.

Mary Kantorowski, however, says she won't leave the house her late husband wanted her to stay in until she died, according to the report.

The case will head to trial on March 2 in Bridgeport Superior Court.

There are ways to assist the elderly to stay in their homes. I would recommend Mr.Kantorowski avail himself of the senior services available in Fairfield or Trumbull for recommendations about care at home, reverse mortgages etc.
