The problem would be worth fixing if you can find the source of the leak, then you can make a decision after the costs are considered.
If it is just dripping, the low pressure hose might need to be replaced. This is the least expensive of the two hoses to replace. The high pressure side is costlier, but a good mechanic can do the work efficiently.
If the leak is coming from a corroded metal line on the firewall (behind the engine) the repair will be more involved.
Take a look at the P/S pump/hoses while a helper turns the steering wheel from one side to the other (lock to lock) so the source of the leak can be located. Place a large piece of cardboard under the engine to help locate the area where the fluid is dripping. Be cautious of pulleys, belts, and any rotating parts on the engine while it is in operation.

your power steering pump may be failing, the system is restricted check for clogged filter and check pump pressure, the steering gear (box or rack) may also be binding, check also for worn ball joints or bent links.

Make sure the power steering pump reservoir is full and check belts for tightness. Other than that your pump may not be working. But hey it lasted 16 years right?
