Hello out there!

My mother is getting on in years and her mobility is getting limited. We have a master bedroom on our main floor that we turned into an apartment for her and moved her in since my father passed away about a year ago and she was facing living alone with declining health. She currently uses a walker and has been struggling to climb the 5 or 6 steps we have to our front door and we've been thinking about installing a little elevator/wheelchair lift in our garage so she could come in and out without the struggle and stay out of the weather. Plus is she gets hurt or sick and can't traverse the steps under her own power we'll be pretty stuck.

Our budget is about $5k and it seems like there are options in this price range - kind of a lot of them in fact. I'm having a hard time finding any comparative reviews just a lot of sales pitches and i've never really heard of any of the companies. Any suggestions or advice out there? I'd love to hear from anyone who has one and what they like/dislike/wish they had done differently.

Thanks for your time and help!
