My father passed away in 2017.  No medical expenses were claimed in 2017, as taxes payable was already $0.  Can my mother claim medical expenses incurred for my father up until his date of death?  Can she claim expenses for him for 12 or 24 months?

I'm sorry for your loss. The medical expenses incurred on behalf of the deceased can be for any 24-month period that includes the date of death, as long as no one has claimed them on any other return.
