I am sorry to hear of your relative's illness, I know how hard that is for everyone involved.
If the machine only trips the breaker on a heat cycle, the issue is likely to be a short in the heater circuit, either with the wiring between the control and the element or the element itself. The element is most likely to be at fault.
In the diagram at the link below, number F110 is the element assembly. It can be tested with a meter but if you have to travel to it, I would order it and take it with you. I can likely find you a video on how to replace it, too. Is this something you are wanting to undertake?

Okay, so it has to be something before the element. Since the element comes with the thermostats and wiring, that pretty much only leaves the main control board or the wiring between the control and the element harness.
It is most likely to be the control. Please allow me just a few minutes to prepare some information for you, thank you!
In the diagram at the link below, number A130 is the power board. It is accessed by removing the main top.
Unfortunately, that control is showing as no longer available, see the link below.
Sure, by measuring the current draw, but it will require a clamp on ammeter. Usually, if the breaker is at fault, the wiring will show signs of distress, like melting or discoloration.
