Mom pushing me to file homeowners ins. claim 4 months after slipping

My mother stumbled in my home while getting out of the shower, and twisted her knee. She is uninsured and doesn't have the money to get an MRI or receive physical therapy. She wants to make an an injury claim against my homeowner's insurance to pay for her medical treatment.

This is all going on after someone else said they'd be willing to help with her medical expenses.
Unfortunately, I'm not in a position to support her financially. She didn't outright fall but stumbled(slipped?) enough to hurt her knee.
The incident happened about 4 months ago. She is just now pushing me to file a claim against my homeowner's insurance. Is this an appropriate use for homeowner's insurance? What happens to me as a homeowner and my policy if a claim is made?
Of course I love my mother and want her to feel better - I just don't know if this is an appropriate course of action. I'm naive to this process.
