Question by Twiggy: Where might I find grants for the purchase of a stair lift for the elderly?
I am in the process of purchasing a new home and all secondary bedrooms are on the second floor. I take care of my grandmother and she is in denial about her ability. So in order for her to move around the house easily and allow her to be close to my daughter I would like to install a lift system on the stairs. But I was wondering if there are any grants available to assist in the purchase of the lift chair.

You should call the medicaid or medicare office. When it comes to the elderly, medicare tends to pay all if not most for lifts, scooters and chairs. If she has supplemental insurance (Blue Cross for example) you contact them.
Grants require that you are doing a study. What you want is for someone to pay for it.
