In brief: Strengthening
Not exactly sure under from what context you ask your question; out of bed? From a chair? While walking? Assuming your mother has been evaluated by a physician, it is important will be to maintain good core strength.
This can be done with the aid of a physical therapist who works with the elderly. Her doctor can provide the prescription to see the physical therapist.

and ... one of the best ways to prevent falls in older folks is tai chi. It has been shown that after just a few months of tai chi 1 hour 2x/ week, falls are reduced by almost 50%
