Father died in Jan. Parents married 60 years. Mother living independently but is exhibiting extreme attention seeking behavior. She does not drive, no volunteer opportunity, but is somewhat active around the home with projects & hobbies. Regardless of the constant communication from family and friends, she never seems to be satisfied with the amount of attention she receives and continues to reach out to immediate family members and infers subtle guilt to each for not doing more. What can be done to remedy this situation giving satisfaction to the mother and reprieve to the immediate family??

She just lost the most important relationship in her life and she is grieving and very lonely. Be patient with her. Would she consider assisted living? There is always someone to talk with. Wait another six months before you take any action.
