Options for keeping track of hours worked

Tech support I guess, finding a program.

One of my cousins works mainly with mentally handicapped people. Most of the ones I've been around get along pretty good, very smart. She picks them up, drives them around, takes them to stores, events, work, "outings", does stuff in their homes, whatever. I don't have a full grasp on the keeping track part of it as I only am going on what she told me. The way I understand, depending on the "level" they are, she has a set number of hours per month she can work with each (varies per person). Plus, she has a max number of hours per day she can be with some of them, I guess she can go over some. Basically she wants something she can put in the hours worked for each, have the total, not go over each monthly total (or daily when required), etc. She's been writing it on paper, and it's a lot of information in a day with several clients.

She is not very computer literate with basic operation other than games.... I am capable of making up a spreadsheet to calculate everything, but I'd like something she could maintain herself (which, I may end up doing this anyway). I'd have to dig into her details more, plus if she'd erase something I'd have to write down formulas/maintain it. I looked on Android briefly, of course several options, I'd rather not go through all of them, figured someone might know. They do have an online thing that her boss puts the hours in, but I did not see any of the total hours, allowable hours, or any of that, just time submission. I've never had a job with a boss, set hours, etc. so I've never looked into this type of software myself, don't know what's out there without doing research, and I really don't have time to do that much now.

Anybody know of something that "might" work off the top of their head? Guessing with a number of "projects", definable hours/conditions for each, and a searchable hours worked, monthly, daily, etc. Something like that. Either Windows, Linux, or Android (or online). Thanks.

edit: She has a flip phone at this time, but will be getting an Android in the future.
