Help me visit my Grandma with Dementia in the DR.

I have not traveled to the Dominican Republic due since 2012 which is also the last time I seen my Grandmother. My Grandmother is my light and she practically raised me. Next to my mother she is my star. However, she is now 87 years old and is starting to show signs of early Dementia. Here in the photo you can see she does this thing where she takes her chair out to the patio and decides to sit there for x amount of time. It’s not too safe because the weather in Dominican Republic can get very hot sometimes and my grandmother has other health complications aside from the early Dementia. She refuses to listen to anybody and sometimes falls asleep in uncomfortable positions. Sometimes when we speak on the phone she asks me countless times who is she speaking to, but I know if she sees me in person she will know who I am right away. I just hope I don’t get there too late which is why I am reaching out for help. This amount being requested should cover round trip air fare and hotel accommodations for at least 4-5 days. This is for 2 people, my mother and I. Due to Covid-19 my hours were cut short so I had to cut into my savings that I originally had for this trip. My mom receives only social security disability benefits and this amount is enough for living expenses only. It’s been very hard to save. Please help me reach my goal so I can go visit my grandmother. My wish is is that she’ll never forget me but with Dementia you just never know :( I am also fearful the Covid-19 may cause another closing of the country before I get to complete this trip. Please help.
