Relatives of alleged abuse victim, Virginia Raveneau, have submitted before and after photos to the Times.
One photo shows a vibrant looking female.
The family says it was taken on 2014 when Raveneau visited the United States
The other shows a bed-ridden individual whom family members said they could barely recognize when they laid eyes on her this year.
Raveneau was taken by her children on January 23, 2016 to the United States for medical evaluation and treatment.
The Times was informed that the seventy year old has been admitted to a hospital in Orlando, Florida.
A spokesperson for the family disclosed that as soon as Raveneau is better and is able to walk again, they intend to bring her back to Saint Lucia.
According to the spokesperson, the reason is to press charges against the caretaker whom they have accused of abusing her since late 2014 when she returned to Saint Lucia from the US .
Police have said that they cannot press charges in the absence of a virtual complainant.
