Having someone forcibly committed to a psychiatric institution is no easy thing, not like it was decades ago. You have to have a doctor sign off on it, have the state sign off on it(via the state mental health coordinator), among other things, and it's not like they'd keep him forever. I've tried to work that angle with someone in MY family....waste of time.
However, I'm fairly certain that if one of your aunts or uncles got power of attorney over your grandmother, THAT person could kick your father the hell out of her house.....they're likely a lot tougher than she is. Just a thought. I don't think the power of attorney has to be a permanent arrangement, either, but I don't know for sure, I'm not a lawyer.
Has anyone considered a restraining order, against your father, to keep him away from your special needs sister? Seeing as how he is a derelict, a user, mentally unstable, and has a history of committing assault(against the police no less), I'm sure this wouldn't be impossible.
As for hexing blood relatives, I've had to do this, most likely will have to do it again, and it has been effective, with no blowback, so yes, it can definitely be done safely. I know quite a few very experienced traditionalists that agree with me, and have had the same experience.
You don't necessarily need to curse him, wreak vengeance, or throw his life into turmoil.....you just need to get him out of your lives, and for the working to be effective, no? Seeing as how your strength is not in hexing/cursing, have you considered doing something 'nice' for him? What does he want? Life goals? Dreams?
What will distract him and get him the hell away from your family?
If this is not adequate, you can always pull the rug out from under him, or make everything go sour....
Things of this nature can sometimes only be managed, not solved completely. If your initial efforts don't pan out well, try again, and work a different angle. Try to work with your strengths, at what you CAN do, and in the meantime, perhaps study and practice a variety of different magical techniques, which will then give you more options in the future?
Good luck, I know that dealing with family can be a real bitch!
"The truth about the world, he said, is that anything is possible. Had you not seen it from birth and thereby bled it of its strangeness it would appear to you for what it is, a hat trick in a medicine show, a fevered dream, a trance bepopulate with chimeras having neither analogue nor precedent, an itinerant carnival, a migratory tentshow whose ultimate destination after many a pitch in many a mudded field is unspeakable and calamitous beyond reckoning." - Cormac McCarthy
