When To Invest In A Stairliftfrom:
Negotiating stairs, to access the first floor or bathroom of
your home, can become a daunting and hazardous task in old age
or bad health. The risks of falling down the stairs and
hospitalising yourself, or having a broken limb, should prompt
you to purchase a stair lift. For the old and disabled, a stair
lift is a necessity and not a luxury. The architecture of your
home could become your biggest enemy, so get help to get control.
Don't wait for an accident to happen; invest in a stairlift
right away. If upping sticks to a retirement bungalow is out of
the question, invest in a stairlift to help you get around your
When investing in a stair lift, the most important thing to
consider is the extent of the invalidity that the person who is
going to use the stair lift suffers from. The second
consideration is the type of staircase on which the stairlift is
to be installed, as this has a bearing on the type of stair lift
which can and should be fitted.
Stair lifts vary greatly, from simple standing lifts to ones
that have seats, sensors, remote controls etc. Stair lifts for
straight and curved stairwells are also different, and some
homes need two stairlifts to climb two flights.
Once you have decided that you need a stairlift, you need to
find a well known stair lift supplier who caters for your needs.
Cheap stairlifts are available, but will generally be a waste of
money; a stairlift needs to be tailor-made to you and your
home's requirements, not a bodged job. Also, be sure to check
that the supplier provides service, maintenance and a warranty.
Should anything go wrong with your stair lift, you need it
repaired immediately. If repairmen take days to turn up, you
could be suffering and unable to navigate your home.
Buying a stair lift can give you a new lease of life, in terms
of being free to navigate your home independently. It can mean
staying in the home you love, rather than relocating to a
retirement bungalow because of mobility issues.
It is worth exploring funding possibilities, as local councils
do offer Disabled Facilities Grants. For those who have
essential mobility needs, which can't be met due to financial
issues, local councils have an obligation to assess needs.
Grants can be used for mobility devices or improvements to your
home, so it is well worth exploring this avenue.
