A California couple says the 64-year-old woman they hired as a nanny refused to do the job, ignores the fact she has been fired and won't leave their home.

Instead, Marcella and Ralph Bracamonte of Upland, Calif., say the woman is eating their food and telling them she plans to sue for wrongful dismissal and elder abuse, ABC News reports.

Diane Stretton has also told the family she wants them out of the house between 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., the Bracamontes say.

Stretton told the family she would leave in 30 days, but when Marcella tried to get that in writing, the non-nanny said the letter wasn't legal.

"Once she said the word legal, I knew it wasn't going to be fun," Marcella said, adding she won't change her life to make Stretton happy, although she said she's concerned for the safety of her three children.

Police have refused to get involved, saying it's a civil matter.
