Disabled single woman looking for info about retirement in Cuenca, Ecuador

I need any info I can get about whether a single disabled woman would find it possible to retire in Cuenca. I walk with the aide of a walker (or an electric wheelchair at times)to get around as I have arthritis and a balance problem and would fall if I did not have something to hold on to. I originally thought about retiring to Cotacachi but was told by someone who did tours in the area that I would find it almost impossible to live there as there are no elevators or curb cuts in the village and most places I would need to go to have steps to climb. They suggested Cuenca would be better for me, but I have not been able to get in touch with anyone in Cuenca to see if this info is correct. I would be so thankful for anyone who could tell me about Cuenca and the problems that I may face there.
