This is for my 94 year old mother. Any advice regarding battery operated vs electric. Thanks in advance.

I would recommend an electrical one with a battery backup.

Thank you so much for your reply. Is there a particular brand you recommend?

I can tell you which brand not to buy. Do not buy Acorn, bad lifts and bad service. I hear Summit may be good. Other things to consider are what each service call is going to run...average is about $250 per visit, but some companies now give a reduced rate with a maintenance plan.
