Next Step for Judging Incompetence

My Mother in Law has some serious mental issues, including not knowing what day it is, getting lost somewhere she's all her life, and not taking care of herself. Unfortunately, her Psychiatrist has not diagnosed her with anything other than being BiPolar. She is married, however, her husband is a diagnosed manic depressive. The family believes that she cannot take care of herself and he is not able to take care of her either. She still has her credit cards and has run those bills way up with magazine subscriptions that she has no interest in (such as Gymnastics Today!) What steps should my husband start taking to declare her incompetent? We would very much like to get her better mental health treatment and get her away from her husband so one of us can take care of her.
