Thanks for writing.

Someone who knows where she lives needs to call the police in her area and have her picked up on a Baker Act. DO NOT wait - if she is hearing voices telling her to kill someone - SHE WILL ACT ON THOSE.

Call the police and have them go pick her up - she will be placed on a hold in a hospital and they will give her the right medication to make the voices go away.

DO NOT IGNORE THIS. That invalid woman is in a life-threatening situation and if she dies, you will be partly responsible. She could also kill the child.
