Seat height and proper leg extension should never be compromised. If she needs to get a foot on the ground to shuffle forward, the proper way is to just remove one foot and shuffle with it, while leaving the other foot on the pedal. Never lower the seat to be able to get both feet on the ground, never.

But if she absolutely wants/needs to take both feet off the pedals to put them on the ground while still sitting on the seat, maybe install a dropper seat post.
