Oh, I so do recognize such situations ! I'm not sure what is possible. The social worker at a nearby hospice might know of local resources, even if she isn't at this stage appropriate for direct hospice cae. A social worker should be sought to assess her condition and her state of health. If she is no longer able to care for herself, there is some possibility of a compulsory admission, or of some source of home care to help. Check with your local council ( I know, most are appalling ) but they are supposed to provide some sort of care for the elderly and disabled. As a good neighbour you could start such processes going, and supply them with contact details for the daughter.
Is there a local church which could help ?
Of course the daughter could do something, such as return for a while and arrange for proper care for her badly neglected mother.
