Usually there is a "elder services" department you could talk to. Not as a
complaintant, just to put a bug in their ear. they can figure a way to stop by 
check and see if she is eligible for any of their programs,etc. this gives them 
chance to look around. I bet she is in a living hell and would love a senior 
where she gets three meals and care. You, know, the state may, if the house is
hers, accept it in exchange for her life time keep in a nice facility. Better 
And that worthless son will be out on his carcass and have to actually work for 
living and say "sir" to someone...or jail.
Go for it.
