Pat Houston flew her ailing niece Bobbi Kristina to Chicago to have her evaluated by experts before she was moved to hospice care, PEOPLE confirms.

The 22-year-old was hospitalized in January after being found unconscious and unresponsive in a bathtub in her Atlanta townhouse. Still unresponsive after months in the hospital, Bobbi Kristina was transferred to an Atlanta-area rehab facility in March and ultimately moved to hospice care last week.

Bobbi Kristina’s aunt Pat flew her to Chicago to be seen by doctors in a last effort to help her. The move was also to help her father Bobby Brown understand that every effort has been made to treat his daughter, a source tells PEOPLE.

Relatives gathered at Bobbi Kristina’s bedside over the weekend as her condition continued to deteriorate.

Visitors included Pat – who is married to Whitney’s brother Gary and serves as her legal joint-guardian – and Bobby’s sister Tina Brown. The women were seen embracing each other outside the care facility, crying.

“Despite the great medical care at numerous facilities, [her] condition has continued to deteriorate,” Pat said in a statement last Wednesday, later adding, “We thank everyone for their support and prayers. She is in God’s hands now.”
