Sounds like my mom and my partner’s mom. The older they get, the worse it gets. They basically become unable to care for themselves. My mom did the same thing to her friend after we had her involuntarily treated and she refused care. She fled to Maryland to sleep with her friend somewhere in her home. It’s been several years since I have spoken to her. If she refuses treatment, I absolutely cannot have a relationship with her for my own mental health and sanity.
