Don’t you and your loved ones deserve the freedom and independence that comes from accessibility around the home? This is where a stairlift makes sense and can truly enhance and improve everyday life. Aging in place becomes a feasible goal for those with physical disabilities or mobility issues when they invest now in a stairlift.
With Independence Day 2020 upon us, it is easy to take for granted the independence that we do possess. For those living with physical limitations or disabilities, freedom may seem like a lofty goal. By bringing home mobility aids and devices, you could be opening up a whole world of independence and autonomy for anyone who struggles with a set of stairs, getting in and out of the bathroom, or driving their vehicle. Consider the many ways that mobility equipment, primarily stairlifts, can improve, enhance, and empower. Call and talk to an industry expert today!
All Kinds of Lifts
When you think of mobility lifts, think of more than a simple stairlift that accommodates a flight of steps in the home. While these basic lifts are life changing, there are other options that can enhance and elevate access beyond what you imagine. For instance, consider porch lifts that provide access to outdoor spaces, gardens, and the backyard; think about pool lifts that enable users to once again take a dip in their cool, refreshing pool- whenever they wish!
Some other lifts that consumers should consider include vehicle lifts which allow motorists to get back behind the wheel of their car or truck, while also safely stowing wheelchairs or scooters during the ride. The best way to review and pinpoint pragmatic options are to talk to a mobility expert and take a look at what is available in your area.
Know that installing a lift is no easy task if you are not a mobility professional or technician. In fact, allowing anyone other than a qualified tech to install, service, or make repairs to your lift can render any warranty null and void. Let the retailer assign installation and service equipment for you, which is why it makes sense to only buy from a vendor that has established positive feedback and customer satisfaction for long-term service and support options.
Furthermore, installation challenges like curved or very-steep stairs, can be simply addressed and resolved by someone with expertise in the field of lifts. Don’t sabotage your freedom by buying from a company that won’t stand behind what they sell over the long haul.
Aging In Place
For many people, the thought of leaving their home due to injury or illness is a frightening prospect. As we age, it may become more difficult- even dangerous- to stay unassisted in the home environment. A lift can help circumvent the difficulties and challenges that come with aging, or that arise due to physical limitations and mobility issues. Give yourself the chance to live out your life as you choose, in your own home, with the help of mobility equipment and aids, like a stairlift.
A stairlift provides a future utility and function, too. It is there as needed for rehab or recovery, should anyone in the home require assistance after an injury, operation, or illness. Furthermore, these devices retain value and are an investment that pays for itself in overall convenience and improved quality of life.
Staying Safe and Holistic Health
Another prime purpose of a stairlift is to reduce the risk of a fall or injury that could lead to serious medical complications and consequences. It is estimated that every eleven seconds a senior takes a nasty fall that warrants medical attention; this can lead to exacerbated health problems, increased exposure to illness during hospitalization, and long-term debilitation. Falls spell trouble, particularly for those over age 60. A stairlift is a precautionary measure that not only helps the user access areas of the home that may have been off-limits previously but also can prevent accidents and injuries that can change life as we know it.
