My aunt's health was/is declining, she decided that her unemployed friend could be her caregiver. Now, my aunt's house is falling apart due to neglect. It reeks of cat urine (the friend's cats) and there is filth and clutter everywhere. She allows her friend access to her finances. The family suspects that the friend is taking money for herself, but my aunt won't allow anyone to check her accounts. The friends uses plastic bottles to urinate and leaves them sitting in her room . The doctor has recommended that my aunt move into a nursing home, she is diabetic and has been hospitalized several times due to not eating and for multiple falls. The friend sits in at the doctor's appointments and insists that my aunt is fine. The friend won't voluntarily move out. Should APS be contacted?
