Being unable to move up and down your two-story house can make you feel like a prisoner in your own home. Mobility issues are one of the top reasons that aging seniors are forced to move out of their forever homes, leaving behind a lifetime of memories they aren’t ready to part with. Even when physical limitations aren’t present, as people age, they often develop a fear of slipping and falling, causing them to be uncomfortable using the stairs to get to their bedroom and bathroom or vice versa, from their bedroom to the kitchen. Fortunately, stairlifts can be installed in most homes to help people navigate the stairs safely.
A straight or curved stairlift from Home Access Remodeling can provide the freedom to access the first and second floors of your home safely. Another benefit of a stairlift is its ability to restore independence for seniors too frail for the stairs. A stairlift allows them to move around the house as they wish without having to ask for help or requiring an in-home care provider.
Guaranteed safety, independence, peace of mind, and convenience makes installing a stairlift a smart choice. Most aging seniors would rather age in place than move to a senior care center, which is why this is such an important investment.
