I know that my mother will be fine after reaching there, she is a person who knows how to adapt very easily.

    Is there some reason “adaptable” won’t work? It seems like a pretty obvious answer. – mRotten Feb 19 at 10:29
  • "knows how to ... adapt easily" is a little unidiomatic. She adapts easily or knows how to adapt. – TRomano Feb 19 at 17:58

The most obvious answer is adaptable, and adjective for someone who is able to adapt quickly and are good at it. Credit for @mRotten for mentioning this first in the comments.

Versatile is also a word, though it doesn't just describe something that can adapt quickly. It can also describe something that has a lot of different things to offer.

A noun that might fit is chameleon, though it mostly refers to people who are often change their behavior, beliefs and/or facade, to fit into a situation or please someone at that moment.

One suggestion that means a person who "adapts easily" is one who is "flexible".



Without knowing more about your mom and her situation, it's only a guess as to what will fit here:

Easygoing - A person who is usually relaxed and in good humor - even when those around them may not be. Someone who "rolls with the punches". https://en.oxforddictionaries.com/definition/easy-going

Resourceful - The ability to obtain what you need and want on your own - not necessarily having to depend on others. https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/resourceful

Two-faced - Able to control one's personality in order to be perceived favorably by conflicting or opposing persons - as well as allies. https://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=two%20faced

    That's not what two-faced means. – Mitch Feb 19 at 12:46
  • @Mitch - Not entirely, but it is an aspect I thought pertained to the question. BTW, great rebuttal. – Oldbag Feb 19 at 13:13
