Is Mom still in rehab?

What kinds of things is she unable to do? Can she
get up from a chair or bed and walk with a walker?
toilet herself?
make a simple meal?
use the microwave?
use the telephone?
use public transportation? (call a cab or take a bus?)

Since Mom is 49 I'm guessing that you and your sister are in your twenties or thirties. You are either raising a family or working or both, right? Interrupting your career and social lives right now might not be the wisest solution here. What is your idea about your sister being Mom's caregiver?

Was Mom working when these problems started? Is she on disability now?

Has her doctor ordered any in-home care for her, such as a visiting nurse, or someone to help her bathe, or physical therapy?
