My wife has both Alzheimers and poor sight. Lately when we try to leave the house she becomes quite distressed at the step down which is approximately 6 inches high. we have grab handles outside the door which she uses when we re-enter but simply won't hold them going out. I've started looking at ramps but they are aimed at wheelchair users. We do have a wheelchair and I could put her in it but if anyone has any ideas as to how to overcome the step down without using a wheelchair I'd be very interested.
