How can memory loss and depression be treated?

My mother is in the hospital after a series of falls in her home. As lived alone until these falls resulting in fractured vertebrae and after recovery fell again and fractured ribs. In the last year has short term memory loss and repeats questions and not aware of day or time of year. Knows all the family but now very angry at me and my brothers because we have put her in nursing home even though she is still in hospital. Cries and refuses to eat unless we take her home but currently has c diff. Is there medication that could help her mood and memory loss?
