Do programs replace concrete steps at home for the disabled?

Post by MarcoR »

Hello, I am currently disabled and living in Salt Lake City, Utah. I was wondering if there is a program that can help replace my concrete steps. My concrete steps are falling apart. They are cracked and chipped with a big slope at the top. I have tripped a few times. I fell twice. I think it was because there is a huge chip on one of the steps. There have been a couple of other people who have fell and almost slipped as well. There's only one railing on one side. There really needs to be a railing on both sides. I have back, hip, knee, and joint problems. Fibromyalgia, degenerative disc disease, bugling disc, osteoarthritis, etc.
When I am having a flare up, I have to slowly walk up the steps and hold on to the rail. Because the top of the steps are cracked and have a slope, I have almost fell as I walk out of the front door. We got a estimate for $5,000 but the guy said he would probably need to replace the driveway way too because he could crack the driveway while replacing the steps. So he then wanted $15,000. We just need the steps replaced. This was back in November.

Greetings...
I am seeking emergency and urgent assistance for my disabled brother and I.
We live in our family home, built in 1923, a five generational home. But it is in bad shape and we need access for us, maybe new concrete stairs or a ramp.
The home repairs have reached a critical state.
The roof is leaking in almost every room.
I am Care Provider for my brother. I do not receive any income for his care. We are living on his SSID per month.
I was taking care another brother that lived here at it was his and our Mom's home. My brother passed away in 2022 from Cancer.
Connecting with resources for help and assistance has been a huge under taking.
We would appreciate greatly for any assistance you can provide for the roof or stairs for our home. Thank you so much.
Best regards,
