Can a person invoke miranda rights on the behalf of a family member who is capable of doing so themselves?

For instance, if someone is getting arrested and their sister says not to question him until she gets him a lawyer, but he eventually chooses to waive his rights anyway and tell the police everything, would his testimony be admissible in court
