At home, in a central location in the house, can drop what I am doing unless it is running a turn, then just wait for a combat results screen, and do what needs to be done from loading the dishwasher (No, I am not saying get her a drink!), to clearing a jam in the toilet that my nearly 13 year old son has left. She knows I am there for her. If she needs to talk, there is a chair next to me, she just has to move Queen Sasha (Our Siamese) from her post on it and sit down and talk to me. Again, plenty of time to pause from the game and pay attention.
Also, listen to the house. Know what is going on. Call the kids in occasionally and talk to them about things the wife wants talked about. It is all great and wonderful, so when she hears the "Ding-Ding" of a turn loading, she knows all is well. It becomes a comforting sound, it becomes something she looks forward to hearing.
It is all about the conditioning.
