Diagnosis: Mild reactive depression
 
She requires counseling sessions with a Psychologist to help get out of the current state and so that you can discuss the issues you face and feel lighter yourself about it. (Target area for treatment is to make the patient accept her state of immobility as this seems to be the central feeling in her thought process.)
 
Ask daughter to explore the possibility of getting the help of a physiotherapist who could help her to become slightly mobile with support. Request them to consult a Doctor or General physician physically for further diagnosis and treatment for her.
