Your mother has suffered a major stroke (Paralysis) and presently you are seeing after effects of that in many ways. 1. Physiotherapy, Occupational therapy, Psychology professionals other than doctors to treat her diabetes would be essential. 2. If you find limited facilities near your present home we would suggest Institute for Neurological Sciences
