A common problem faced by those physically challenged individuals wishing to remain in their home, is navigating stairs. If your current home wasn’t designed with access in mind, you may need to make some aging in place home modifications for yourself, your aging parent, or a loved one with physical limitations. Navigating stairs is easily done with a stair lift.
Whether you’re an adult who wants to age in-place at home, or you are dealing with physical impairments preventing you from using the stairs, or you are the parent of a child for whom climbing stairs is not an option, stair lifts help ensure your safety and increase your ability to move about your own home.
Parentgiving.com says, “There are certain mobility issues that can’t be resolved just by using a cane or walker—notably navigating stairs. Unless the house is a ranch style, there is at least one flight of stairs—usually up to the bedroom—and quite possibly two, maybe down to a family room in the basement. Fall prevention or managing with bad knees often means avoiding stairs and that might even prompt a move to a single-story housing option. One home modification that could allow for aging in place is the installation of a stairs chair.”
