Mamie is an 87-year-old women whose degenerative arthritis causing her to me almost completely incapacitated and is losing her memory to senility. Moira Mamies daughter is concerned her mother is being abused by her brother Meldrick who was diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia after an honorable discharge. Meldrick is the sole caretaker of his mother, he relies on support from Moira as well as his mother’s Social Security and Medicare assistance. Moira has seen bruises on her mother and has heard reports of her mother being left outside in a car for hours at night while her brother went in to various places (bar, OTB, church).

I believe that Mamie may be being neglected but I’m not certain she is being physically abused.
