Mother seems to be in the last stages of dementia. The only time she leaves the house is for a dr's appt. The last time I tried to take her for a day out by the time I got her into the car, at the mall and out of the car into the store even in a wheel chair she was exhausted. Told me to buy her something and let's go home. I haven't taken her out since and that was months ago. I wonder if it's worth the expense of a ramp for a dr's apt every few months. She can barely walk now and we move her around in the house in a w/c. Of course, I'm not sure how I'm going to get her into the car for her next appt. She has to go down about 6 steps to get into the garage and car and naturally, she has to go up those same steps when we get home. Anyone have an idea how much a ramp will cost? Thanks for any help you can offer.
