Dear Sandy,

I would talk to a social worker and see if there are any community resources or possibly through church if you are looking at financial assistance for the chair lift. I know some charities will donate this type of equipment as well.
You could also check with resale shops in your area. When my mom died, I gave her lift chair to a non-profit resale shop. See if they'll take your name and call you if one comes in.
Medicare will not cover a complete "lift chair", but strangely enough they do cover the "mechanical parts" that enable the chair to lift.
