Help David and Dorothy stay home

On Christmas Eve 2020 their lives changed forever. Dorothy (mom, Memaw) was weakened with pneumonia while David (dad, Grandpa, Grumpa) took a catastrophic fall and is suffering from a brain injury. Of course, they want to be in their home, not a nursing home. While helping to get their home ready for hospice, we have come across numerous things that need to be repaired sooner rather than later.

Anybody that knows these two, know that they do not ask for help and rarely accept it when offered. Now is our chance to help out where we can. They need handicap ramps on their home as all of the entrances are steps, the electricity in the entire home is out of date and unsafe and needs to be re-wired, and the plumbing is always needing to be fixed. I'm sure there is more that they need help with but this is just what we have come across in the last few days.

We have the manpower but the material is going to cost. If you can help at all, it would be greatly appreciated.
