My mother is confined to a wheel chair. Recently I had a storm door installed leading from the only handicapped accessible door from my mother's home. She is unable to open the door and wheel herself out simultaneously. Is there an inexpensive remote control door opener on the market or are there any other types of doors or suggestions that might work?

Yes, there are several kind of remote controls for doors. You can get them with hydraulic openers, you can get the kind you drive over, you can get electric eye. For house doors and storm doors, they are not that expensive. You will not find them at a store like Home Depot. Go to a quality lumber yard, or you can also contact your local or county handicap office and they should have a list of suppliers. I have installed several, but cannot remember the brands. Good Luck
