There is a waiver program in Iowa that helps to modify homes and get people other assistances that the ill and disabled need .

 

I was able to get a ramp put on my house and a wheel chair lift for my car; I am going to talk to them about a lift chair .If you are in need of this program just go to human services to get an application form; there is a two to three year waiting list .

 

Another program is Vocational Rehabilitation and Education for Independent Living; they also help with the modifications. Both of these programs worked together to pay for the aluminum ramp; if any one would like the phone number for this program please send me a PM.  This program also has a two to three year waiting list.

Hi Quiltfairy,

 

Thanks so much for letting us have the information about the Waiver programme in Iowa.

 

I'm really pleased to hear that your application was successful and that you've been able to install such useful mobility aids and I do hope that you are also able to get your lift chair.

 

Kind regards,
