At Advantage Home Health Solutions, we proudly offer a wide range of home healthcare products, as well as accessibility and mobility solutions. Our primary objective is to offer our customers safe and effective methods of overcoming the limitations set by their disabilities. With safety being a top priority, we ensure that our clients are well informed about their options and all of the safety features that come along with them.
Our stair lifts provide excellent examples of home accessibility solutions that offer numerous safety features. Among them are speed governors (which help to maintain safe and manageable speeds), obstruction sensors (to stop the chairs from coming into contact with obstacles), seat belts (which secure users to prevent slipping and sliding) and constant pressure controls (which allow users to control the stair lifts during ascension and descension).
Do you have a home that inhabits an individual who may require the assistance of a stair lift? If so, please consider the following four benefits of installing a stair lift in your home.
1. It diminishes the fear of falling.
As we’ve highlighted in numerous blogs of past, slips and falls make up the top culprits for injuries and even deaths among our elderly. Preventing falls, therefore, is a hugely important task for caregivers of seniors. With a stair lift installed in your home, the fear of falling when climbing the stairs is all but eliminated. Naturally, fear triggers panic, fright and stress all creating worsened emotional circumstances that can actually cause slips and falls.
2. It provides independence to our elderly loved ones.
At Advantage Home Health Solutions, the restoration of independence is part of our credo. “You Deserve Your Independence” is the motto proudly displayed on our website’s homepage because it’s a belief that provides the inspiration for what we do. A stair lift is an excellent way to give independence back to the individual in your home who struggles with mobility. It allows someone who may be incapable of climbing steps to easily go up and down the stairs without the need for assistance.
3. It prevents accidents.
A person with mobility issues and decreased strength doesn’t just have to be concerned with how to get up and down the stairs. He/she must also be weary of objects, slippery surfaces and poor lighting when making his/her way to different levels of the home. Naturally, eye sight often diminishes with age. A stair lift ensures that no items left on the stairs become obstructions or tripping hazards. Stair lifts are excellent accident preventers!
4. It helps you to avoid expensive remodelling.
In many cases, elderly individuals who live with mobility issues need to have their homes reconstructed in order to meet their unique needs. In some cases, ramps need to be installed both inside and outside of the home. Of course, with renovations come big bills. A stair lift is an excellent cost-effective alternative to remodelling that helps those with mobility issues to not have to be confined to any one level of the home.
