In brief: Support

What your mom needs now, depends on why she had the seizure.
There are many possible causes for this, so i assume she's having a diagnostic workup. If you saw the seizure, your description will be very helpful to her doctors. If her forgetfulness persists, she may need you or other family to attend medical appointments & studies with her. She may need your help remembering to take medicines.
