In brief: Most Ages

There is no absolute age.
Infants have been successfully transplanted as well as 70 year olds. The largest number of heart recipients in the US are between 35-65 years old. It often depends on the degree of co-morbid (other) diseases. It would be extremely unlikely over age 75.

In brief: Almost any age

Depending on the severity of heart disease, both children and adults may be candidates for heart transplantation.
Typically it is best to wait as long as possible.
