How about buying one of those wireless front door bells and sticking the 'button' bit in her room?

How's it going trefusis?
So,she'll be staying with you. Are you sure you're up to it?
How about a cheap kids' walkie talkie thing?

My sister-in-law useed a wireless front door bell when her father stayed with them following an op - you could always wrap it in fabric (tea-towels etc) to reduce the volume while the kids are asleep at night. She then passed it on to us and I used it to summon dh when I needed a helping hand to get out of the bath when heavily pregnant and following a section - thinking about it, there are loads of situations it could be used in - could be a really worthwhile investment! Hope your mother makes a swift recovery and that you are blessed with lots of patience!
