It sounds like a family that has problems with life's decisions. Both the parents and the siblings need professional guidance.

My friend is lost and called me asking my advice,should he call elderly abuse hotline?? Hope it doesn't continue?? He wants his sister to get mental health evaluation,he doesn't want her to go to prison,which she is heading that way on probation for 6 DUIs child abuse and she doesn't even go to her probation appointments??
What would you do? And what would you advise this person to do about his alcoholic abusive little sister who is 45 years old? Physically abusing her parents?
She's getting away with it now... Why would (or in her mind should) it stop??
She doesn't go to probation appointments ???? Easy out then... Go down to the station/courthouse/Sheriff's department and report her and while there get a restraining order ASAP !! Let her know that until she gets straightened out and stays sober for at least 6 months IT WILL REMAIN IN PLACE !! Let her know the choice is simple... either get in rehab and/or incarceration or keep on going and die.... and there is NO SUCH thing as an old alcoholic/drug addict !! SOMEONE with some sense needs to take control and think about all parties concerned here..... and it quite obviously isn't her. At 45 years old it's time for her to grow up and be responsible !!
Good luck to everyone... and stay close to the old folks. They'll be her target of blame for everything happening.

It was my sister I'd bust her drunken a$$ then call the law on her for the abuse. The only thing I dislike as must as child abuse is abuse of old people. My mother and me do not get along (long story). Been that way for many years but I wouldn't let something like that happen to her. I can't understand how anyone could want to harm an old person. Especially one that raised you.

You did the right thing OP. Make sure to see it though to the end.

Call the hotline and turn her in. It will not get better. It will only escalate.

At 45 and still beating up on her elderly parents, I'd say it is chronic alcoholism, which requires serious intervention, however aggressively done, to put an end to that bullsh*t! If done then lives are saved; if not lives will undoubtedly be lost.

I agree, but I would drop the warning. She has committed assault against a loved one. OP, your friend is bring a bit of a pansy by not even being able to make this decision on his own. That may be a bit harsh, but it's the truth.

I assume (at great risk of making an ASS of U and ME) he would call the police if it were someone he doesn't know assaulting his parents. So what makes it any different that it's his sister? Bull spit. He knows she has problems, and she has proven that she's a danger to others, he needs to man the **** up and handle his ****.

My family and I have a mutual understanding amongst us all. We would bend over backwards for each other, but only to a limit. If you're a danger, commit a crime, or need bail, you're on your own. That may be kinda raw for some people to think of family being that way towards each other, but you know what? We've all paid for our own mistakes, and we've stayed out of jail and serious legal trouble.

And yeah, for the record, my Mom turned me in for a little lapse of judgment I had when I was 17. This ain't just big talk, the walk has already been walked.

Tell him to grow a pair and protect his parents from a clear and present danger. Otherwise, he's just in the wrong, and this guy here can think of nothing at all good to say about him if he won't stand up for someone he loves who can't stand up for themselves.

That's par for the course for abuse. Abused women do that a lot. I have told the one or two I've known that they remind me of a friggin' moth and a candle - no matter what is done to shoo them away from it, they are driven to return to the flame.

No matter. You look after your side of the street and do what is right. None of us can change other people. IMO, every adult is entitled to all the pain they can stand. I just won't be a party to it or wallow in it. Since I began steering that course many years ago, I live better.

If somebody's asking me for help, I've driven some miles for that purpose and will do what I can. But I take no responsibility for the outcome. Sometimes, we put a hand out to someone who really does want to find some answers and is teachable; sometimes we put a hand out and s/he turns out to be a moth. Either way, it's what we do and don't do that matters. The way it turns out is up to the other person(s) and God.

Sorry to get a little preachy........but you did raise the topic.
