Depressed son is reluctant to leave home

Dear Amy: At the beginning of the pandemic, my husband and I moved across the country.

Our adult son was laid off because of the pandemic and struggled with depression.

We decided to invite him to move with us to help him get on his feet again.

It took him a while to get a part-time job, and now he was finally hired full time. We are very happy for him.

However, he gets upset when the subject of having him move out and be on his own comes up.

He tells us that because of his depression he is afraid to live on his own and needs to have family around.

He is already on antidepressants, but doesn’t follow through with seeking counseling.

We are getting close to retirement and don’t want to have children living with us when we do retire.

We also have a younger son who is living with us and attending a local university.

We are fine with helping him out until he graduates.

We just don’t know how to help our oldest son get to a place where he can live independently. What would you suggest?
