Over the years, many of our stair lift clients have told us that they strongly regret not fitting a stair lift in their homes sooner than they did. Our response is always the same, “Well you have your stair lift now, so it’s time to start enjoying your new found freedom”.
Why people wait to fit a stair lift
There are a few reasons why people hold off on the decision to fit a stair lift in their homes:
- Worries over independence
Many people feel that by using mobility devices they are giving in to age or maybe a disability. They don’t want to feel dependent on a stair lift, mobility scooter or home elevator. The truth is that mobility devices will actually give you back the freedom that you may have lost. So, if you find yourself struggling to get around your home, it may be the right time to consider fitting a stair lift.
- It’s an important investment
Your stair lift is a reliable piece of mobility equipment that will be with you for years, but choosing the best stair lift for you can be confusing. At Western Stairlifts, we understand that you want to make the very best investment when you buy your stair lift. That’s why we’ll consult with you and even visit you in your home to make sure we find the perfect stair lift for you and for your home.
- Concerned about damage to stairs
Home is where the heart is, as they say, and no one wants to damage the place that they’ve invested so much time and money in. One of the main questions that we are asked by stair lift customers is how much damage fitting will cause. The fact is that stair lifts cause minimal damage as the rail is attached discretely to your stairs, not the wall, so no need to worry – we won’t leave any mess behind at all!
The right time to fit a stair lift really depends on your current and future needs. If your staircase has started to cause you or a loved one problems and you find that you can no longer move around your home like you used to, it would be a good idea to take a look at the options open to you.
