Increased vocalization in senior cats can often be one of the symptoms of hyperthyroidism (as can weight loss and increased thirst). Also could be "kitty dementia", or even related to loss of hearing, plus a decline in kidney function as Winston mentioned. Along with a vet visit (sooner rather than later, as untreated hyperT can cause heart problems), you might consider turning on a few night-lights around your home.

Good luck!
