Well, you can't really sponsor her for a green card; there's no category for a permanent resident to sponsor a parent.
But, your mother can apply for a visitor visa to come temporarily to assist you. she'll need to prove her ongoing ties to her home country to demonstrate her intent to only stay a short time and then return home (job to return to, home abroad, etc.)
