Hey Lynn - This is going to sound impossible, but encourage your mother to force herself to get up and move around for just a tiny bit as often as she possibly can in order to not lose muscle tone and mobility. Even if she just uses muscles to stand up walk to the bathroom or kitchen to do her thing, and then comes back to bed....
My FIL was in the hospital for almost a week (not covid) and then home doing nothing except lying around watching the television, and he lost so much mobility it was shocking. He has to use a walker and can only get down the stairs in the morning and up the stairs once at night to shuffle to the bedroom. Poor guy.
