What Are Your Finance Options When Buying a Stairlift?

Stairlifts can be a way of improving your mobility around the home and preventing accidents from occurring. However, among other important factors, one thing you should consider is the cost of the installation. Although there are options for all budgets, you may need additional help finding something affordable for your needs.

In this blog, we explain some of the things that you can do to make paying for your stairlift easier.

Apply for a grant

Did you know that financial support is available for those living with disabilities? If you require alternations of mobility installations in your home, do not suffer in silence. The Disabled Facilities Grant is a government-funded grant awarded to eligible disabled individuals. It will not affect any benefits that you may already get and a successful application can make you eligible for mobility aids including stairlifts, ramps and bathroom adaptations.

Get support from charities

If you don’t qualify for a grant from your local authority, or you require further financial assistance, there are many charities that can help. Independence at Home and Glasspool Trust are just two of the charities that can help you with financial support. Charities can also provide well-being support so your physical and mental health are both being cared for.

Shop around for the best deal

If you have a particular budget in mind, to ensure that you’re getting the best deal it’s important to shop around. You should consider the quality of the products you’re looking at, as well as the cost – going too cheap, could result in regular repairs that will begin to add up. Take your time and find the best value for money that you can afford.
