Christina need a lift for transport

Our daughter is now 32 years old and we are getting to old to lift her into bed, shower, and toliet use. My husband and I have both had surgeries myself 2 hip replacements and my husband had 2 back surgeries. She has fallen before and we were unable to her back into her wheelchair. This is a rare disease called  leukodystrophy which attacks the brain and was born with this disease. We had 2 daughters with the same disease and our oldest had since pass away 7 years ago. There is no cure and she will gradually get worse, and there are no treatments. The money for this lift will help us lifting her out of her chair and into bed, toilet, and bathing. This device it totally portable and can be moved from room to room. We have tried in the past to get help from SSI and we are unable to get any assistance. We have looked at many other products and none seem to be more affective than this product. We need to have this lift to relieve the the stress that puts on us and Christina, and not only that but to relieve us from the pain from our backs and hips. We have been trying to do this or the past 7 years but with limited funds and both of us working full time jobs and different shifts to be able be with Christina at all times of the day.  We have spent so much money through the years to make our home handicapped accessible, we tried numerous times in the past for handicapped assistance through our government agencies with NO help what-so-ever. There are fees for Go Fund Me which I think everybody thought it was non profit but it is NOT free. Thank you for whatever help anyone out there can give us.
