Are the steps outside, directly up to the house, or are the stairs in the garage? It will make a difference as exterior stairs with a lift would require protection from the elements.

Check with your local building inspector. Often they know where to find funding for lifts or ramps.

The very first thing you do is to find a chair lift company that has a lift for your Mom to try. She may love it, or be terrified of it.
