I agree with this advice - if you want to get your passport quickly, call the government/Senator/Representative. Also, this web site says they have a way to get them in 8 days if that's fast enough to match your travel arrangements:https://travel.state.gov/content/passports/en/passports.html
If you have expired passports, that should make the process go as quickly as possible (rather than getting brand new passports).
I was there in 2009. Both sides are wonderful - you should definitely go even if you can't get into Canada and back. From the perspective of looking at the falls - I prefer the Canadian side.
From the perspective of *feeling* the power of the falls - I highly recommend the Maid of the Mist. You don't need a passport for that.
I have no idea if/what they could offer but you might want to contact the visitor center for advice as a tourist - I assume that she will have limited mobility, etc and they might be able to offer suggestions on how to best spend her energy enjoying things.
