Next time she goes into the hospital, you should tell the social worker ON THE FIRST DAY that she is unsafe at home (and/or on the street) and DO NOT sign her out of the hospital.

Does she have a primary care doctor? I would talk with whomever has been tending to her medical needs. They should know the proper steps to take. You also could call local nursing homes and ask them what admissions procedures are. Hope this helps.
