Hello ika chandra, thanks for the question for HealthReplies.com
Your mother's current condition is most likely caused by a condition known as delirium or also known as acute confusional state (ACS). Delirium is a serious disorder in a person's mental state that causes confusion in thinking and decreased awareness of the surrounding environment.
The following are some of the symptoms of delirium:
