Does she want to attend a gym or just something simple at home?
Weight training will benefit her greatly. What's also important is her nutrition as well as vitamins and minerals. At 43, like most women, I best she doesn't come close to having enought calcium. Have her invest in a multi vitamin, collodial minerals, and daily exercise, including weight training.

A good method for training for overall health is to set up a circuit course training program. Mixing light weights with cardio.
1.Start out with a good brisk walk for about 10 minutes.
2.Walking lunges - 40 - 50 reps
3.Some form of cardio (walking or jogging) for 3 minutes
4.Pull ups (try for 20) if you don't have a pull up bar, do some shoulder work with a some dumbells
5.Push ups - 20
6.Step up lunges
7.Deadlifts with light weight
8.Cardio - 3 minutes
9.Pull ups or shoulder work
10.Push ups - 20
11.Switch leg jumping lunges - 20 each leg
12.Reverse crunches - 50
13.Cardio - 3 minutes
14.Pull ups or shoulder work
15.Push ups - 20
16.Frog jump squats - 20
17.Cardio - 3 minutes
18.Hyperextensions - 20
19.Reverse Crunches - 50
21.Cardio - 3 minutes
21. Crunches - until it burns
22. Reverse Crunches - as many as possible
This should give your mom a good starting point. And it will only take an hour to do.

My mum is almost 50 and 12 years ago had a car accident and broke her neck- she was told she was never going to walk again and didn't for 2 years- until she decided she was going to defy the odds and she them they were really really wrong! She has just won her 3 consecutive title as Miss Natural Olympia (Masters)- last year she also won the Open Title (Medium Height Class)- so just make sure you really encourage your mum and tell her age is no barrier- good on her!!
