Has it been a while since you could easily use your stairway? Why not consider the many advantages of a stairlift? Stairlifts bring function back to stairs and steps for those that have physical limitations or mobility issues. They bring a sense of confidence in the user, too which inspires independence. Consider these perks of installing mobility aids in your home!
If you struggle with using the steps and stairs in your home, it could be the perfect time to consider a stairlift. Mobility aids are some things to be thankful for when you want to remain in your own home and preserve your independence. Quality mobility aids and equipment increase autonomy it is that simple. Here are some of the other ways that stairlifts restore function to stairways in your home:
The first way that your stairlift restores function is by creating access. There is a loss of accessibility for many who experience physical challenges, limitations, or disabilities as they age; a stairlift allows for access to ascend, descend, and navigate stairs. Is your bedroom or bathroom on an upper level of the home? This is not uncommon. A stairlift makes getting there easier.
What good are stairways in the home if you are unable to safely traverse them? Some individuals find that they must reconfigure the home to suit accessibility issues and overcome stairs. A stairlift allows you to conquer stairs. Talk to a qualified mobility retailer to learn more.
Why shouldn’t comfort be a function of your stairlift? Comfortably use the stairway in your home with the assistance of a quality-brand lift. The seats offer a range of features so you can smoothly and quietly ascend and descend the stairs, as desired. Going up and down steps or stairs is not a big issue or incident with a stairlift you just do it, and you do it in comfort.
Additionally, you have the added convenience of buying from a retailer that stands behind their product when you install stairlifts from Pacific Mobility. They offer service, support, installation, and repair plus, many of their products come with a warranty. Speak with a representative to find out more about the specific mobility aids and lifts that you are looking for.
This brings us to safety. Stairlifts enhance the overall function of stairs by increasing the safety on and around them. It is true stairlifts go a long way toward reducing the risk of a fall at home. Experts estimate that there are about 36 million incidents of falls each year involving seniors in this country. Falls can lead to complications and health issues that cause debilitation and deterioration from which, many never recover.
So, what is the function of a lift, you ask? It is to safely get you from one level of the home to the next. Stairlifts make the stairs ‘work’ again for you or for anyone who struggles with mobility challenges or limitations.
What more important function of any mobility device is there than the independence of the user? This rings true for stairlifts they can be life-changing. Those that have the freedom to live independently can live any way that they please. If a stairlift facilitates autonomy, then it is a very prudent and practical choice.
Stairlifts allow you to access all areas of the home environment, upstairs and down. Stairlifts can be installed indoors and out, too; plus, if you need additional support, there are other types of lifts that may be beneficial. From vehicle lifts and pool lifts to porch lifts and ceiling lifts, there are aids to make life easier. When it comes to the function of a stairlift, your autonomy is first and foremost.
You should not be wary or nervous about navigating the home environment. Stairlifts foster confidence as you adapt with ease to using them each time you ascend or descend stairs in the home. A fall or injury can cause a loss of assurance when completing daily tasks or ADLs (activities of daily living); a stairlift counters this by offering a safe and simple solution to getting up or down the stairs.
Got an upcoming surgery or medical procedure? Stairs should not impede convalescence and recovery. A stairlift provides the extra support and care that you may need for fast and safe rehabilitation. If the issue is a temporary one, you may be able to rent a stairlift as you heal. Talk to a qualified mobility retail professional to learn more!
