A stairlift is a helpful tool in any home to help individuals get up the stairs. While some see it as very much a last resort, it is actually a great benefit to have a stairlift if you are struggling or in pain.
Here is why it might be the right time to invest in a stairlift.
If you’re suffering from a medical condition, or getting old, you may find it a bit of a struggle to get up the stairs. While you may feel like you should persevere and attempt to ascend, it may actually be better for your health if you use a stairlift instead.
Walking up the stairs when your body is trying to tell you not to could result in injuries or conditions getting worse. Over time it may even be a struggle to get out of bed or walk around, and at this point you may have to consider options more drastic than a stairlift.
If you feel you can’t handle your stairs anymore, you might have people suggest you move into a care home, bungalow or somewhere else where access is easier. If you don’t want to move out just yet, a stairlift is a perfect solution. This way you can get around your house still and not have to consider moving out just yet. Moving house because you can’t get around it anymore is very detrimental to your mental health.
Many shy away from getting a stairlift as they don’t think their home is suitable for it, being an awkwardly shaped staircase or not thinking they have enough room for it. However, stairlifts can be installed in nearly every home. Companies will come to your home and find out your exact spacing and requirements, then tailor a solution to fit your space.
The cost of stairlifts has come down in recent years, but the quality of lifts is on a steady improvement. This means you can get yourself a great deal on a stairlift without having to sacrifice on quality.
