Hi there I understand your concern...it may be paroxysmal nocturnal dyspnea...The cause of these symptoms is a sudden build-up of fluid in the lungs. This is usually due to excessive strain on the left side of the heart and is a form of heart failure...you should take your mother to nearest cardiologist for clinical examination and evaluation they will guide you further.
