Help needed building a wheel chair "Lift"

My mother-in-law who is in a wheelchair will be moving in with us in our new house
Due to the logistics and the length to height ratio and space limitations I need to build a "lift" rather than a ramp. I know I need either a motor that runs two ways or some sort of hydraulics with a two way valve which will enable the lift to "Push" up and "Float" down

I can build the frame work for the lift I just need some "Frugal" ideas on the operating system. It MUST operate on either a switch or a lever as my mother-in-law has limited use of only one hand. 99% of the time someone will be there to help her but I would like her to be able to do it so she feels she has more freedom. Her mind is Great but MS has taken her body

Any help or a point in the right direction will be appreciated
