I'm afraid my cousin and his wife are going to kill my aunt. They aren't feeding her or giving her medicine and are taking her money but not paying her bills. What if he kills her with neglect?
My aunt is 85-years-old and lives in a long term care private home facility. She has Parkinson's but has been deemed to be of sound mind by the State of Delaware.
Her son has talked her into coming to live with him and his wife. They have both quit their jobs and are going back to school part time. They need my Aunt's money to live off of since they will not be working at all.
My cousin is horrible to his mother and has taken her for tens of thousands of dollars. He is being turned over to the Attorney General for investigation under the Laws of Infirmed Adults.
He is her only son and she can not say no to him. Our fear is that we know she won't be taken care of, they do not feed her or give her her medicine when they take her out for visits, this past weekend they just popped a Xanax in her mouth. He has taken over her checking acct but does not pay her bills. He has charged $22,000 in credit card bills without her knowledge but she won't turn him in.
All we can do is wait til he mistreats her and then call the state or the police, what if he kills her first with neglect?We don't leave in the region?
