You definitely don't need a car to get about Cala d'Or. There is a little train that runs from one part to another but it is easily walkable. From Cala d'Or to the Marina takes about 15 mins, then about another 15 mins if you want to go to Cala Egos.

A taxi back from the supermarket is a good idea but that will only cost a few euros.

If it really is 10 minutes to the centre then you don't need a car. The big eroski supermarket is towards the back of the resort and there is another smaller one in Cala Egos but there are a number of reasonable sized Spars that are very convenient for essentials such as water that you wouldn't want to carry far and have fresh bread ,pastries,fruit and vegetables etc and they all have a range of familiar products such as breakfast cereals,tinned goods etc at premium prices.There are also butchers and bakers around the resort. if you are going to 'eat in' and 'drink in'in your villa often then it is probably a good idea to walk to the big supermarket do a big shop and taxi back, then top up at your local spar. If you know the address of your villa we can tell you how far it actually is to the shops.

I honestly think a car would be more of a hindrance then help in Cala in the town.

We were there for 7 days and walked absolutely from end to end.

Sidewalks can be crowded,, and narrow out sometimes with shops wares and café tables infringing . it will not be super easy for your mom in a scooter in many areas but she will be able to go to more places with you then if you didn't have a scooter.. so I think you will manage ok with patience.
