Stay At Home but Still Get Around
There comes a time in all of our lives when we have to cut back our activity. As hard as it is to accept — regardless of health — it’s something we must all deal with at some point. But being told by your physician that locations and activities must be limited doesn’t have to mean that it’s true for your home. Home stair lift equipment along with other items such as walkers, canes and wheelchairs are available to help make getting up and around inside your home easy and comfortable. A stair lift is a stationary chair or platform that rises up the wall alongside of your stairs with you seated or in your wheelchair. When you’re at the top of the stairs, simply release the safety and go about your business on that floor and vice versa.
Protect Your Loved Ones
Why should the two-story home you loved and live hold you back? A stair lift chair might be just what you need to ascend and descend the highest stairs in comfort and safety. Forgot something upstairs? Want to go downstairs, perhaps go outside? No worries and no need for help from family members who may not be in the physical shape to help you. What’s more, aiding a person even just from the bed to the bathroom is better left to trained experts. You’re not doing your family members any favors by relying on their younger bodies to give you the help you need, in fact you may be endangering them. Even the most physically fit, young member of your family hasn’t been trained to life someone in your condition and it’s best left to the experts.
Physical & Emotional Lift
Over the years you’ve created a beautiful home environmental filled with furniture and collectibles you love. A home you’ve lived in and loved in; a home you’ve enjoyed fully. A stair lift chair can give you the physical and the emotional lift you need to keep living the active life you love so much. And most lift chairs are designed with your comfort in mind. What would be the point of helping you up and down stairs if it caused more discomfort then it was worth?
Live the Life You Want
Why be a burden to others or unsure of yourself? Neither one is a good place to be. Yes, you have difficulties climbing stairs but that doesn’t mean the upstairs or downstairs is forever restricted. Mechanical chairs were designed with people just like yourself in mind. Generally, they install quickly and easily, and many companies offer payment terms for those who qualify.
Why Limit Yourself
As the saying goes, when life gives you lemons, make lemonade. If you’re not able to climb stairs or are having trouble doing so, you don’t have to automatically change your life or your place of residence. You can look into various improvements to your quality of life including the possibility of a cane, walker, wheelchair and many even a stair lift chair.
