Financial Ap for Dummies?

Does anyone know of a simple to use financial Ap that can be run by a fairly illiterate to technology woman? The Ap will need to be able to make spreadsheets to present the information!

I need an ap for a lovely woman who barely knows how to turn on a Mac mini! She has been running the household for a quadriplegic woman for quite some time. She coerced me into working there as well and I have made it my personal goal to "cover everyone's ass"!!! Especially as our patient's health is beginning to fail. The patient trusts this woman who has worked for her for well over a decade more than she trusts her own family. This woman has a durable power of attorney for medical decisions when the patient is incapacitated (probably because none of the family really visit or help out unless the patient is hospitalized or Christmas gifting is involved). None of the family would hesitate to sue this woman or any of the other staff if they thought there was any financial gain.
I have already helped to implement policies to guard against wrongful doing by increasing documentation and encouraging this lovely woman to do more employee evaluations, updating emergency info regularly, etc.
The area that still presents an easy target is finances. This lady has slowly taken over balancing of check books, limiting spending, payroll, everything! Sadly her skills at presenting the information to the family are considerably lacking! (Basically she has a pile of used check books, bank statements, and billing information) I have updated the 12 year old PC to a Mac Mini and price is virtually no object for a great, incredibly user friendly finance ap! She is great at numbers, and I am good with technology, so hopefully together we can make it work!
Bonus points if you also know of an incredibly easy scheduling ap, iCal is a wee bit finicky!
By the way, my need to cover this woman's ass is very personal, she's my mom!
Considerable thanks to the hive mind in advance!
