Yes, you gave her the correct.  I am not sure HOW serious this is, but I do know it should be investigated further with a specialist.

Hi there. Your mother needs to be assessed by a neurologist in detail. Certain medical conditions need to be considered like a transient ischemic attack, stroke, alzheimer’s disease and depression. Once stroke and TIA are ruled out, she may be assessed by a psychiatrist depending on the protocols in the hospital.
Take care.
