hi welcome to HCM

i had gone through your query and understand your concerns. i would come up with the possibility of BPPV;Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo may be the cause for your mother sufferings.

Dix-Hallpike maneuver may confirm the diagnosis.

consult your local physician for correct diagnosis of the case and remedy to fit her complaints

I hope this is helpful for you, thank you
