Old basement floor
I don't have an answer for the leveling compound. Are you talking about thinset, like mortor? or pure latex, that's used under sheet goods?
My best guess is that thinset will stick and that is what you should use.
Wow, you doing this work from a wheelchair? Right on brother.
I understand about the sump and powerwashing, and also that the dog's may have caused the paint to fail in some areas. That being said, I still want to make sure you know that an old house with a below grade basement is prone to moisture/humidity in the concrete. Cracks and other breaches may also be a factor. It will be important to make sure the basement is dry and will remain dry before you do all the hard work on the floor.
