I live with my other half and his mother in her house we moved there because she needed someone there with her. Help her etc. The problem is she will not do anything to help herself medically. She is sick and has had recurring sepsis for over a year. It has and I'd damaging her kidney. She always tell them she wants to leave once she starts to feel better. Everytime it is good for a very short time then I can see the signs slowly coming back. Her son and his sister will not take action. She is obviously not capable of making a sound medical decision if she over and over does the same thing knowing the outcome . The sepsis never goes away. I am scared. How can I get her son to see that if he doesn't take control then she is going to die, very painfully. What can he do to ensure his mother stays until all is gone.

Do you mean medical "attention"?

If the lady in question has not been declared incompetent, she is allowed to make her own bad medical decisions.

Can her son persuade her to see a doctor?

Does he feel that he shouldn't go against his parent's wishes in any circumstance? Some families are like that.

What is a medical ATM? The only reference Google finds is in Africa. Are you in Africa?

By other half do you mean your husband, significant other? But, there is a sibling involved that should assist in obtaining medical care? Does she see a doctor regularly?

Is there never any medical intervention even as simple as taking her to Urgent Care if she has no regular doctor? By stating living with your other half I am assuming you mean that is her son. The lack of reasoning sounds quite serious. I don't know if you feel that you could take her if her health will continue to detoriate. Is there a reason they will not seek medical help for her?
