It may be better if the mother has something else that fulfills her. My mother was working for the last ten years of us living at home, and dad always worked running his own businesses, and she still had a hard time adjusting...but she also had some sort of nervous breakdown after her mother died and didn't seek help. She is still in denial about that, so there wasn't much we could do. She was addicted to the pokies for a long time, as a substitute.
