A man in a wheelchair won a house once and they instantly offered to rehab the house to make every inch accessible if he kept it. As most people do, he sold it, so it wasn't an issue. The car was adapted for him. I don't know if they would still do those things nowadays because so many cost-cutting measures have been adopted lately.
As far as aged parents go, instead of the actual winner being handicapped, I think you would be on your own. I think universal design will be catching on more and more, but HGTV isn't taking a lead on it.
I bought a lottery ticket to try to win this house with an accessible second-generation unit built in on the first floor. Have to wait a few months to see if I will win it. You can try to win, too--it's for a great cause. Look at floor plan 260 if you are curious. http://www.deyoungproperties.com/why-choose-us/st...
Sorry I am so late seeing this, TwoCorgies. I hope your mom is already out of the hospital and thriving.
