Can we deduct mileage for helping my wife's mother?

Can my wife deduct mileage for taking her mother to appointments like doctor, dentist, chiro and hair cuts? Her mother lives in an assisted living home. My wife also helps at the house each night taking care of her mother, can she deduct the mileage to and from the house?
