There is a long thread in the archives about this. The ultimate solution was 
get the person professional help. This is a serious problem that is not likely 
to resolve itself. And could become dangerous in one way or another to the 
community.

Cities have social workers who can intervene in such situations if there are no 
family members to assume responsibility. If the person is a senior, you might 
also contact a Senior Center to see what services they have available or can 
refer you to.
