I haven’t dealt with that exact situation before, but I have had to cut my grandmother out of my life (my parents are deceased). I grew up in a very abusive household and in disgusting near unlivable conditions. This woman stole money from the accounts that were set up from my inheritance. She didn’t want me to grow up ever because she wanted to keep her access to my accounts and continue receiving benefits from the state.

I eventually started going to therapy on my own when I was living on my own. My grandmother continued to “borrow” money from me and threaten me or say that she was going to starve or be killed by other people if I didn’t give it to her. My therapist asked me if I really wanted to have her in my life. I said “no. But doesn’t that make me a bad person? To cut out my own grandmother?” she said “No.” And then I felt I had the freedom. I’ve never spoken to my grandmother since… it has been wonderful.
