    My parents were never very social.  Now that my father has passed away my mother seems to have become more and more isolated and depressed.  What can I do to get her to become more social?

    I’m not an expert but here’s my advice…

    Go with her to some social activities until she starts to feel comfortable. Help by introducing her to others in her community that she might have things in common with.  If she is a churchgoer, maybe there are social events there.  If she like athletic things, the tennis court or gym can a place to make more friends.   The more she is able to do this, the more comfortable she will become at socializing.
