My mother raised us alone. I was the last one to move out of the house. She got depressed and quit wanting to go home. Now she lives with my brother and his wife. His wife is very upset that she still pays for her home but still lives with them. My brother likes having her as a live in babysitter. This is causing great conflict in their marriage. I know she is afraid of being alone. Can you tell me any way to help her.Answer Question

Can you get her to participate in Church functions? Maybe she could meet someone as a companion. She needs to live her own life. What about Senior Citizen Centers? They offer lots of activities like traveling with groups, Casino trips, Theater trips etc. Also local Libraries offer activities like Computers, Yoga, Exercise programs, mahjong games etc. Maybe she can volunteer at a local Hospital to answer phones or hand out magazines. There are a lot of groups for her too. It takes effort to have fun & enjoy yourself & sometimes people need a push to start. Research these options & discuss it with her. She may be depressed & this will also help clear her head. She needs activity.
