My brother has cerebral palsy and is getting bigger everyday. My mom keeps his wheelchair/stroller downstairs because he goes to school and to get on the bus he needs to go thru the basement. He cannot do anything himself. Hes like a 1 month old in a 16 yr. old body. Everyday my mom takes him up and down the stairs. She sprained her leg for having to carry 30 extra pounds up and down the stairs everyday. She gets soo stressed and complains that shes getting weak more and more everyday. I feel bad cuz im not there to help. I just recently moved out and i was the main one to help my mom with everything. Especially my brother. I know getting a ramp would help her tremendously. Would anyone please give me information about qualifying for a ramp for disabled children..im not sure if there is anything like that but any info would be helpful.

Does he get SSI? He should definitely qualify for some assistance. I would talk w/ your nearest social security office or DHS for advice.
