In brief: Talk to her PCP

about your concerns.
They can help by meeting with your mother and suggesting that she meet with a psychiatrist. She may be more willing to consider medication and treatment from a physician that she has known for a while. if she is endangering herself or others she may need to be hospitalized. this can be arranged if necessary. Good luck and let us know if we can help in any way.
