As we age, we commonly experience tougher battles with balance. Losing some strength and mobility is natural as we get older. That’s not news to you, we’re sure. However, what may be interesting to know is that far too many Canadians are unprepared for the mobility issues that may be awaiting them. Important to note is that climbing the stairs can present dangers in our later years.
“Stairs of all types have been used since ancient times, and because they are inherently hazardous, people have been falling on them, getting hurt or even killed in the process,” alerts the Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety. Do you live with an elderly loved one? What steps can you take (pun intended) to protect him/her from falling down the stairs?
Stair lifts to the rescue!
At LifeCare Mobility Solutions, we strongly believe that installing a stair lift is the best solution. It helps for both the elderly and those who struggle with mobility issues to stay independent at home and to access all levels of their residences. A home stair lift is a motorized chair that slowly and safely glides up and down a set of stairs affixed to a metal rail mounted to the stair treads.
Stair lifts can be mounted on either straight or curved staircases, making it easy to access other levels of your home with any type of stair design. Straight stair lifts are fitted to staircases with no bends. Curved stair lifts are fitted to staircases that have one or more bends and require a custom-designed curved rail.
Stair lifts prevent injuries.
With a stair lift in your home, you can pretty much guarantee that no slips and falls will take place on your stairwells. A seatbelt keeps the user completely safe from falling out of the chair. The unit’s safety system also ensures that the user is always in full control of the ride. As well, the system stops the stair lift if there is an obstacle in its way.
Our stair lifts are battery powered. That means that in the event of a power outage, you and your loved ones will still be able to access the lift for safe rides to different levels of your home. Not to mention, they also easily fold up when they are not in use. That way, they don’t become obstacles to your walkways. As well, our stair lifts come with safety key switches. These let their owners turn them off when they are not in use.
