Yes, as long as her doctor believes that the benefits of taking the blood thinner outweigh the risks.
There is no upper age limit or body weight that would preclude, by itself, someone taking blood thinners for AF.
Does this make sense to you?

It would make it so her level of blood thinning wasn't good enough to prevent clot formation and she could suffer from clot related issues like a stroke or death.
Not taking her medication as directed would be a problem.
In cases like this sometimes governmental assistance is available where a caregiver would come by and make sure she gets her medications as directed.
