Heavy menstrual periods including huge blood clots

My mother has extremely heavy menstrual periods including huge blood clots, they are so bad she has to change her tampon every 1-2 hours, and needs to wear a pad as well to prevent leakage. I m getting very worried about her, because she wont go to the doctor . Any advice on what to do or what it could be? I m very curious because I too have heavy periods, but I haven t clotted yet.
