She must be on a low income and/or benefits, that's how means testing works.   Where do you think she should live?

Or anywhere int' North where housing is vastly cheaper? At least rents and mortgages are, not always so with council tax.  Doesn't Westminster have one of the cheapest rates?
No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.
