Stair lifts for the elderly

Stair lifts can offer the elderly a chance to remain in their homes - even after their mobility has become restricted.

Many people find it more difficult to climb stairs as they get older.

Even if householders are comfortable on level ground, they may be in pain or discomfort if they have to walk up stairs.

A stair lift can help senior citizens stay in their homes by making it easy to go from one floor to another.

Sometimes it may be that a householder has an injury and installing a stair lift for the time it takes to recover can be of great help. Stair lifts can be hired from some companies as well as purchased.

A properly installed stair lift will offer a safe way for an elderly person with impaired mobility to go up and down stairs.

Responsible manufacturers and installers will be able to give detailed advice about the most suitable stair lift for your property.

You may want a straight stair lift or your stairs may require the fitting of a curved stairlift.

Things to consider include the level of warranty and the cost of installation and maintenance. It may be worth contacting your local authority or other agencies to see if financial assistance can be provided to help with the cost of the stair lift.
