Going up a staircase without a stairlift can be a painful experience, where you may need help.
Stairlifts help you move around the house with ease and with no help from anyone.
They are user friendly and do not need any qualified activity.
What you need to do is get on the stairlift, strap in and get it rolling.
You can get to the next floor of your home in just a few seconds with a stairlift.
They may also have curved stairs built.
You have full mobility with a stairlift so you can travel around your home without any constraints or challenges.
No more planning to minimize the number of times you go up the stairs throughout your day.
Furthermore, hiring a caregiver is an expensive expense that could prove beyond the financial reach of many seniors.
Therefore, this means that basic tasks like taking a bath, going from one floor to the next, or even getting out of your favorite living room chair, will become an impossible activity.
This is what drives other people to ‘accept’ the situation they find themselves in.
Full Access to the Staircase
Installing a staircase doesn’t mean that people can’t navigate the staircase.
Entry to the stairs will not be blocked if you choose the correct stairlift, depending on the staircase you have.
Many of the stairlifts have foldable chairs and footrests that can be folded off when the chair is at the top or bottom of the staircase to allow other people in the house complete access to the stairs.
Easy to Use
To most people, stairlifts are incredibly easy to run.
To use a stairlift, sit on the seat, put on the seatbelt, press and hold the rocker switch located on the chair’s armrest, and you’ll be up / down the stairs on your way.
Release the switch to stop the stairlift, and the lift will stop moving.
You should place the rocker switch on the armrest which is better suited for you.
If more than one person can use the chair, you can opt to have one with a remote control switch that lets you call the chair from the top or bottom of the stairs.
Short term Injury Solution
Although most of the stairlifts are bought by seniors with reduced mobility, they can also be useful for those recovering from an accident.
Installing a lift would provide access to all levels of home while a lower-body injury is recovering. Renting a stairlift is a great choice for those who only need a lift for a few months.
Stairlifts are Customisable
Stairlifts aren’t one-size-fits-all, they ‘re tailored to meet your needs and help you overcome your home challenges.
Once the stairlift is installed, an professional must come to your home to assess all the various things, such as the distance, length to configuration of the staircases, and install a stairlift that suits these details.
You should not allow the challenges of mobility to lock you out of your home.
With a stairlift, you can go up and down the stairs comfortably, quickly and safely with no challenges.
What’s more, it takes less than a day to build the stairlifts and it’s quick so there’s no excuse you don’t even consider getting a stairlift in your house.
