Having a stairlift fitted is a huge investment so it’s totally understandable that you might be unsure as to whether you require a lift or you don’t. From our huge experience in stairlifts, often customers say that they wish they had one fitted much sooner than they did. So with that in mind let’s take a look at some of the signs you might be ready to.
You’re out of breath when you reach to the top of the stairs
If this is you then climbing the stairs may feel like climbing a mountain. If climbing the stairs is triggering problems for your health then you really should think about getting a stairlift put in.
You have problems seeing the steps
Sometimes certain conditions make people misjudge steps such as Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, visual impairments and so on. It’s crucial to avoid accidents happening at home. It’s more understandable for you to sit on a lift and comfortably get off it at the top of the stairs other than misjudging steps and falling on the stairs.
A change in mobility and being unable to do climb the stairs as you could
Often there can be a gradual or sudden change in mobility that can make trekking stairs much more tricky or even undoable.
