You will not be able to simply bring her to the UK. Your mother in law would have to be so unwell she'd be unable to help with looking after the children.

The requirements are that your mother in law must require help with daily tasks such as washing and dressing. You'd then have to show that you couldn't afford to pay someone to look after her in the home country, followed by showing you could afford to look after her in the UK.

To bring her through the EU route - she'll need to be a dependant on you - so she can't be financially independant. Please note that this route will also require you to move the centre of your life to that EU country. But she won't have to meet the 'daily task' requirement.

Finally note that if you apply for the adult dependant route under UK law and you fail (and as far as we know almost everyone does given the requirements) - you will rule out any future visitor visas for her.

Choose wisely.
