Husband died several years ago. Son is care giver but in her own house. She refuses medication, rarely takes shower, makes vulgar gestures and screams out. She talks to herself constantly. It is almost like she is possessed. I am concerned for her safety and others. What are our options? Her sons think she is harmless but I have been attached and threatened by her.
