Non custodial, non-family elderly woman who needs intervention. How can I help?
I have a dear widowed family friend who has not adjusted well to losing her spouse. Her son and daughter-in-law live less than ten miles away and do not engage in her life, her social and emotional needs, nor her health care. What recourse do I have to try and get this dear saint some help? She is depressed, lives in a home she can not care for, has laundry facilities in a basement she can not get to because of a recent fall, or two, and has offspring who wait in the wings for her to die. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
