Can I/should I block this person from PayPal?

Long story short, I helped someone with some money last year. They were out of work and I was doing OK financially so I helped them out. This snowballed and they kept asking me for money and I kept helping them out because I'm a fucking idiot. I sent them money through PayPal and once through Venmo. I blocked them on Venmo, on my phone, on all my social accounts including ones I never even had contact with them through, but I couldn't see how I could block her through PayPal? Is this a concern? Can she do anything, assuming she enlists the aid of someone who knows how to do anything? Is there any way to block her?

Any recommendations in this situation?

edit: She also, unfortunately, has my home address. I gave it to her years ago when we were acquainted and had plans to do a photoshoot. She's never been here and I'm not sure she even took down my address, but that kind of concerns me.

edit 2: I realized I missed some context here. She tracked me down through a different number and while I normally don't answer "Unknown Number," I had a weird day today and wasn't thinking straight and answered and it was her. I told her I couldn't talk to her, hung up, and that triggered me blocking her from everything.

    Not an idiot, maybe just too kind. Generally people like that look for the easy mark and if you're not that anymore, they'll move on.

    I'd probably get a new Gmail, change all your passwords, and use that email as the recovery address.

    If PayPal is tied to a main checking, maybe get a Simple account and use that if you still need PayPal.
