Typed will prepared by a mentally sound adult was not signed and that same adult subsequently
became severely mentally impaired. How can that will be made legally acceptable?
As you describe it, it can't. However, a will does not have to be "Signed". It can have an X on it or any other mark to indicate the person signed it. You need an extra witness and a witness statement to the effect that the person put his mark on the will.
