Do you live with an elderly love one? Is a member of your household contending with a mobility issue? If you’ve answered “yes” to either question, you may want to consider installing a stair lift in your home. Stair lifts are known, all throughout the world, for their ability to provide safe and smooth rides up and down stairs. By utilizing a stair lift in your home, you practically the eliminate the potential for a dangerous slip and fall on the staircase.
Stair lifts enable you to age in place.
No matter where you go in this world, you’ll find people who would much rather live at home than in any other residence. Loving family is certainly a feeling that is shared worldwide. Being more comfortable in familiar surroundings – you can put that in the “globally agreed upon” category as well. A stair lift allows the senior in your family to remain comfortably at home instead of in a long-term care facility.
“People with mobility issues, either caused by age, injury or medical conditions, are often forced to move home due to the difficulty of moving around freely,” England’s Mobility Living Centre reminds us, “By installing a stair lift, you can stay in the home that you love, probably near to your friends and neighbours, until you’re ready to move out, meaning life can go on as it should do without any stress and upheaval of moving.”
Stair lifts work wonders in preventing falls.
Is there anything more important than our health and safety? Especially when you live with an elderly loved one or person with a disability, the importance of safety is paramount. A stair lift ensures that all of the members of your household can avoid any slips and falls on the steps.
As Euro Lifts Limited of South West England points out, “stairs can be difficult to navigate for the elderly, and a simple misstep can send someone flying down the stairs which can result in broken bones or another serious injury. Installing a stair lift is one way to prevent accidents and falls, enabling people to move up and down the stairs without putting their health at risk.”
Stair lifts add value to your home.
Although stair lifts can quickly and easily be installed and uninstalled, they can serve as excellent permanent additions. Let’s suppose you’re looking to sell your home while your stair lift is still installed. A potential buyer with an elderly loved one to consider may see your property as the ideal place to purchase. It’s worthwhile to consider leaving your stair lift in place if and when you decide to put your house on the market.
“Depending on the size, location and style of your house, adding a stair lift can actually add value or make it more appealing should you ever wish to sell it,” says Mobility Living Centre, “You’re adding high-quality equipment in to a home which needs it, meaning anybody with mobility issues who may look for a new home would possibly look favourably on your home as the work has already been done.”
