My name is Lynn, and I have an older sister who has been suffering with a severe mental disorder for many years. She is getting progressively worse and has become a danger to herself and others. She is a good person with a heart of gold, but something has gone terribly wrong in her mind.
My family and I are desperate for help and are hoping to get her admitted to a facility where she can be seen by a psychiatric doctor and to determine whether or not her condition is treatable with medication.
We have a social worker involved to assist us with having her admitted to a facility, his name is Andre Hugo. Andre is preparing an application to the Court to have my sister involuntarily admitted since she will not go willingly into an institution, however we as a family will need to pay for her care once she has been admitted in order to keep her there for the treatment. The contact details for the social worker are as follows:
The monthly cost of keeping someone in a facility of this nature is between R4000.00 to R5000.00 per month, and my sister will need to be kept for a length of time in order to really get the effective treatment.
My family and I are not able to afford the necessary medical care she needs, and to get someone admitted to one of these facilities in South Africa is only an option for those who have the funding to do so, which brings me here to ask for any assistance possible.
Please assist us to get my sister some care, we really cannot do it alone.
Thank you for reading and taking the time, I deeply appreciate it.
