It can be a terrible thing for a person to lose access to parts of their home. Multi-tiered homes present mobility challenges to seniors and those with mobility limitations. And when a person’s limitations prevent them from having easy and regular access to floors within their own home, a stair lift might be the perfect device to increase independence.
Stair lifts are terrific mobility aids, and modern versions of the device have more features that enable a smoother experience. For instance, modern stair lifts are offered with a swivel seat, which can make the transition smoother. And the stair lift can be modified to better match your home’s decor, and when it blends in with the rest of the home it makes the home feel as comfy as possible. And the stair lift can accommodate a curbed or straight staircase.
The type of person who needs a stair lift might not be limited to only someone who has been diagnosed with mobility limitations. Seniors who at times have issues with balance or who worry about the potential to fall for any reason will likely benefit from a stair lift. When a person falls while going either up or down the stairs, they can incur serious injuries. Living with the fear of a fall on the stairs can be difficult and pose certain challenges and limitations to a person’s independence.
It can be a difficult decision to purchase devices that increase mobility. Whether or not there is an official diagnosis that includes mobility limitations, a device such as a stair lift can help increase the quality of life for a person who has physical limitations. If you think that a stair lift could benefit you or someone you care about, then call the mobility experts at G and J Enterprises today.
