A stairlift can enhance the lives of those with limited mobility. If you experience mobility impairments, then a stairlift can help give you the independence that you crave. Not only are stairlifts easy to install within a residence, but they’re affordable and versatile enough to fit the needs of any homeowner.
Stairlifts are Very Safe
It’s natural to be skeptical about the safety of any product. Here at Preferred Elevator, we believe that safety should always come first. Unfortunately, statistics show that falls are the leading cause of fatal and non-fatal injuries for older Americans, with most falls happening inside their homes. A large number of those people are wheelchair users.
A lot of older people also have arthritis, making it challenging to move up and down the stairs. Stairlifts help to eliminate the possibility of falls because you’ll be seated as the device safely moves you up and down stairs. Less strain is put on your body, lessening the pain from arthritis.
What makes a stairlift extremely safe is the safety mechanism that are built into the device that can detect when objects are in its way. It also has a backup battery if you experience a power outage. Also, there are safety features that can prevent children from activating the unit. All you have to do is get in, buckle up, and enjoy the benefits of safely gaining your independence back.
Stairlifts can be Modified to Fit
Have a small staircase? No worries! Stairlifts are able to be modified easily so we can install them on any type of stairs. Whether your stairs are straight, or have a landing that is curved, straight, or a combination of both, you won’t be limited. The seats and footrests are also comfortable and come in 2 sizes to be accommodating. There is an operating switch on the chair itself and comes with remotes, which are useful and convenient in getting you from floor-to-floor.
Save Money with a Stairlift
Stairlifts are economical when it comes to installation, but there’s a bigger picture. Americans spend a lot of money sending their loved ones to nursing homes or senior living facilities because they’re afraid that they can no longer enjoy their home due to mobility issues. Another occurrence is moving their loved ones into a home with one story. Millions of homes in America have at least two stories and it can be devastating to make such drastic changes so late in life. People are living longer, which is fantastic, but elders deserve to live their lives as they always have independently. A stairlift can give them the freedom to do so and save money at the same time.
