Hello I’m really hoping that people will be able to help.
My father in law is virtually stuck in one upstairs room of his house. It’s a long story but I’ll skip past that.
We need to get him out of the house for a very close relatives funeral and are not sure how we can make that happen. The stairs couldn’t accommodate a stair lift, and I’ve heard that stair climbers aren’t easy to use for the handler. He doesn’t have a professional carer, it would be family members using it. They would also need something to get him down quite steep steps as the house sits quite high above the road level.
The funeral is in 2 weeks 
Thank you for reading and I hope you have some ideas 
Many thanks
