10 year old displaying strange behavior

My 10 year old dog is displaying strange behavior. My 93 year old mom moved in with me in June. About 3 weeks ago (mid-August) my dog started pacing and scratching at the shower door in the morning until my mom gets up. Once mom is up, my dog is fine. At night now, she is breaking out of her mesh crate. She has slept in the crate with no problem in the past. It’s almost like my dog needs to make sure my mom is ok and wants to get to her. I don’t know what to do. Any suggestions?

Get a better crate. NOT wire. Try plastic crate.
Put the crate near where your Mom sleeps so the dog can see her or hear her.

Use baby gates to keep her away from the area of the shower door.
