Is she on medication right now? If not, yes there are meds out there that can help stabilize her moods. My Gma would having crying spells too but once she started on Namenda, she seemed a bit better. You should talk to your mother's doctor to check what sort of medications can help her.

Have you tried playing music she liked when she was younger? I used to working in nursing homes and music therapy was very very helpful.

SOunds probably lame, but did you ask her what was wrong? Gma does that sometimes and its because she realizes she forgets. So I make it fun saying everyone forgets, that I'm on medication that makes my forgetters work overtime, that its ok if her forgetters work overtime. Don't ask, my aunt started the "forgetters working overtime" and its funny but works lol. If asked why the forgetters are working overtime we respond with maybe being tired, maybe a medication, maybe just a bad day for the forgetters lol.
