Bursitis is not quite a disease, it is rather a condition. Bursitis is inflammation of a bursa, which is thin walled sac lined with synovial tissue. Your mother is probably suffering from condition known as house-maid knee. If occurs in the bursa (sac) situated under overlying knee skin. This condition is caused by kneeling on hard surfaces. Treatment consists of prevention of the aggraving situation, rest of involved part, administration of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs or local glucocorticoid injection.
