My grandma has been desperate to get to the Statue of Liberty before she passes away. She doesn't have any dementia but is on oxygen, incontinent and doesn't walk much anymore. I'm trying to make it happen but I don't know how to make it as easy as possible. I'm not worried about the actual Statue of Liberty because I know that it's accessible but it's the getting there that I'm finding challenging. I live about 40 miles from NYC but she might be tired after the drive so I think it's better to get a hotel and go in the morning. Has anyone ever been there with someone like this? She wants to come now but I said late September or early October is better since it is cooler. I tried googling but I just get statue info. I don't know how I can get her to and on the ferry without drama. I don't think that the tourist cruise that goes past the statue is enough because she wants Ellis Island, too.
