I obviously don't know your mother or the severity of her illness, so it's possible she may not have the coordination for an ECV for all I know. But if you find that whatever option you select isn't working out, it's certainly possible to change your plans midstream and go with something else.
Thanks for sharing your experience- I am planning to switch if the first day is too exhausting. I am a little hesitant with her using the ECV. What was your experience in using the ECV the first time- was it a lot easier than you thought? If it's pretty basic I think she'd be okay.
I think the drivers will even park it for you on the bus if needed, I'm pretty sure I've seen that in the past. That's always been my worst fear- getting the thing on and off the buses!!
