What Can I do to Help?

Mon, Aug 12th 2013

My mother says she hears people talking about her. For instance, she says that my sister calls her names in Spanish and that the neighbors are talking about her. Recently, she attacked my dad for the fact that she thinks that he cheated on her with many women. She called me and told me that he got her by her hands and wouldn't let go of her.

I spoke with my sister and she told me the whole story. One thing, she takes care of my little one who is 7 months old, and we are concerned that she might hurt her. She takes really good care of her, can't complaint about that. Another thing, this is not the first time it has happened. It happened to her about 10 years ago.

Please any suggestions of what it might be and what should we do.
