Who are they and during what hours. Creditors are limited by consumer protection laws as to what they can do. Anyone who calls before 8 am and after 10 pm is probably harassing her. They should be told to stop or they will be sued.

The terminally status of the woman entitles her to compassion. But it unfortunately does not, in most places, give her special rights. She can tell the visitors that she does not want to see them. If they continue to trouble her, she could seek an anti-harassment injunction, but why should she spend her last days in that kind of ugly tangle? If she has responsible friends or family, they might tell the unwelcome visitors to stay away.

Does she owe them money? They will keep harassing her. Are you offended? Then pay her debt.
