The holiday season is fast approaching. For most Canadians, it’s a time of joy as get-togethers, dinners and gift-giving among family and friends become the norm. At LifeCare Mobility Solutions, we believe that there are few gifts better than those that that promote the safety and independence of your loved ones. This, of course, is especially important for our elderly relatives.
Does your elderly loved one have difficulty with the stairs?
If the answer is “yes”, a stair lift just may be the perfect gift for your home this holiday season. When it comes to ensuring the safety of your elderly loved one, a stair lift is hard to beat. Not to mention, it enables a person with mobility issues to independently get from one level of the home to another. Regaining independence is a huge deal for anyone who may often need the assistance of a caregiver.
At LifeCare Mobility Solutions, we offer high-quality stair lifts of both the straight and curved variety. There is no “one size fits all” situation when it comes to stair lifts. Because each staircase is unique, our stair lifts are designed to uniquely match the staircase in your home. That way, optimum functionality and overall safety is achieved.
Say “goodbye” to the risk of falling.
Slips and falls are among the top culprits for injuries among the elderly in Canada. “Every 13 seconds, an older adult is treated in the emergency room for a fall; every 20 minutes, an older adult dies from a fall,” reports ComfortKeepers.ca, “About one third of the senior population over the age of 65 falls each year, but since many incidents go unreported by seniors and unrecognized by family members or caregivers – this estimate is most likely quite low.”
With a stair lift in your home, you practically eliminate the chance of your elderly loved one falling when climbing up or down the stairs. Stair lifts are equipped with seat belts to ensure secure rides. They also come with safety systems that enable users to determine when and where the stair lift moves. As well, they allow for the lifts to stop in order to avoid obstructions.
Say “hello” to your renewed independence.
One’s independence should never be underestimated as a minor concern. It’s vitally important for older people to feel that they are still capable of doing things on their own. Too often, one’s physical limitations can lead to his/her emotional breakdown. By restoring one’s independence, much greater emotional states are achieved. This is one of the greatest benefits of installing a stair lift in your home.
“If you frequently experience anxiety attacks when you have to use the stairs, you should realize that stair lifts can easily help with this problem,” reports AgingInPlace.org, “With a stair lift in place, you will get to enjoy peace of mind and independence as you can easily be transported from floor to floor using the push of a button.”
