The Peachland Lions Club are looking for a Wheelchair Power Lift for an individual in need of improved access to his home.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

I know what a power lift is in relation to a vehicle, cant see it in relation to a house , unless you mean the stair chair?

It's essentially a mini elevator used to transport wheelchair and person from ground level up to the deck / front door.
Also known as a Porch Lift. Used where a ramp would be too long. In our case we need a 48" minimum lift.

You may want to contact Can Am Mobility in Kelowna. What you're after is a residential vertical platform lift.

If they don't have what you're looking for, they can probably direct you to someone who does.
Do you know what they do to grammar police in grammar prison? It's not pretty.
