Judith’s daughter neglected her. When told by friends that she should take Judith to the doctor, Judith’s daughter refused despite her mother’s worsening condition. Instead of caring for her mother, she spent her mother’s money on herself. Eventually someone called for a welfare check, and Judith was brought to the hospital with severe bedsores, weighing 80 pounds. Too far gone to survive, she died in hospice from a combination of infection and malnutrition.
