You might leave some clothing or other material with your scent, e.g., t-shirts you've worn or blankets or sheets or pillows you've laid on, that could be put in his bedding so he has a familiar and beloved scent to relax with. And attention and love from you and your mother will always be welcome.
The cat tree and toys suggestions are very good ideas, things to occupy his attention when no one is around. And catnip is always welcome! Perhaps a Feliway diffuser to promote a calming atmosphere too.
Best wishes for your kitty and for you and your mom too! Please keep us posted.
Pat (and my 6 cats)

Death thought about it.
CATS, he said eventually. CATS ARE NICE.
