A revolver that can be cocked is probably going to be the best option.

My mother is in a similar situation and my brother and I tried the auto route for her. She doesn't have the hand strength to cycle the slide and she had trouble with the safety.

So we finally got her a .38 revolver that she can keep loaded and thumb the hammer back as needed.

We have looked at getting her a semiauto with a tip-up style barrel (Beretta), but they are hard to find locally for her to try out and even more "complicated" than the semiauto that she used to have trouble with.
I am no longer participating in gun forums.

Good luck.
