Exterior Stairlifts for Prairie Weather
For those unique situations where it’s not possible to install a Vertical Platform Lift (VPL) – also called a Porchlift or Wheelchair Lift – an alternative to consider is a stairlift designed for exterior use.
Handicare offers two exterior stairlifts to handle the weather in Western Canada. Both are fitted with specialized sealed coated PCBs (printed circuit boards.) In addition to the wild swings in temperature, humidity is a critical issue especially for dry cold that causes static electricity shocks.
Our customers have successfully relied on these products throughout the year.
We reccommend covering the seat and carriage when they are not in use and locking and removing the security key. Clearing the staircase from snow is important and if possible, covering the rail is ideal.
Our client's words
We have been extremely happy with your customer service. After dealing with your staff we appreciate your honest advice and your willingness to accommodate us when at all possible. We look forward to dealing with you in the future.
I experienced service at its best from this awesome team. Their service did not begin and end with the sale. They provide support / knowledge and the right service to meet your specifically tailored needs. They are the go to team!
You have always been so great to our clients. I wish you and your team great success. Thanks again for all that you and your team do for our clients.
We contacted Silver Cross (now Advantage Home Health Solutions) for information pertaining to Stair Lists. We were contacted the very next morning and an in home visit was scheduled for later that day. Upon the visit and confirmation that we would be able to install a stair lift, we received a quote the next morning and installation was completed 2 days later.
We cannot express enough how courteous and expedient the services were. The service was provided with extensive knowledge, professionalism and friendly mannerisms. We would highly recommend the company to all our family and friends.
Thanks so much for making my dad's life so much easier and fear free of stairs now.
Silver Cross (now Advantage Home Health Solutions) was one of the providers I considered for the installation of a porch lift. Phil's personal interest, attention to detail, competitive pricing and excellent service was so impressive compared to the others, that it was an easy decision to his company. I had complete confidence in him and he fulfilled the order on time and as promised.
I have continued to use his business for subsequent needs and the service continues to be excellent. It is always a pleasure to do business with Phil and his staff.
I dealt with Silver Cross in Ontario about 10 years ago so when I found myself in need of a Stairlift in my home in Calgary, I contacted them based on the great customer experience I had previously. I certainly wasn't disappointed and experienced the same, if not better, service than I had before. I appreciate the independent advice that they are able to provide and I really felt that my best interests and my satisfaction were the primary consideration. Thanks again for the superior customer service.
If it were not for Joan and her old fashioned wherewithall, utter kindness, knowledge of the Alberta Health system and billing procedures, and all around super attitude, I'd still be housebound. Thank you are the only two words I have, but believe me, they deserve a whole lot more, truly a wonderful, caring and old fashioned service company. I highly recommend them to anyone.
Thank you so much for all your support and assistance towards my mother, Alice. I called her late afternoon yesterday and asked her, if she received any speeding tickets. We followed her when she went for lunch and we had to tell her to slow down.
Believe she is very happy and having fun with the scooter. Halleluiah!!!
Have a good day!
By the way, Sean is a great guy and is doing a terrific job installing the equipment. He really enjoys his job.
