... an elderly neighbor of mine asked me what is the safest type of investment she should invest in that delivers the best returns ...

Generally, safety and high returns just don't go together. (In fact, I think the neighbor is experiencing some of that right now. The bank's return is miniscule, but it's absolutely safe.)

This, I believe, is the best you can do with a savings account http://www.emigrant-direct.com/

Another possibility is to look at CD's. The downside there is that the money is going to be tied up for some time. But it's safe.
