There are many reasons why we all might wish to consider installing a stair lift at some point in life. The thing a stair-lift suggests is not as some people might initially assume about someone being infirm or incapable, in fact it suggests quite the opposite.
A stair lift in a home suggests freedom, independence and the ability to access all of your property, to be able to remain in the home of your choice and not have your residence dictated by the fact you may no longer wish or are physically able to walk up an down the stairs. A stair lift shouldn’t be misconceived about being weak, it’s actually an empowered choice, it’s about being strong enough to make a decision to take control of a situation and continue to get the best from your home.
A stair lift can be invaluable if balance is a concern, stability, falls and broken bones can be an increasing concern with age and fragility, a stair lift helps to alleviate this fear by simply removing one the most dangerous hazards, a fall down the stair case. There is the fact that the client is saved from the potential months of recovery if suffering broken bones and heavy bruising during any fall, but worse than that in the worst-case scenario a dangerous fall can result in death.
The peace of mind many people feel by knowing they have a stair lift available is invaluable, also to their relatives living elsewhere concerned about leaving them to manage. It can also serve as an invaluable asset to family caring for relatives at home struggling to help their relative up and down the stairs, also fearful of the potential dangers.
But this is not necessary, stairlifts are easy to acquire, and are available for rent or purchase. It’s simply about taking control of your own life and deciding this is not how your time in your home is going to end, if you want to continue to move freely around your home, perhaps give some thought to the possibility of a stair-lift.
