A stair lift is a cost-effective solution that doesn’t require extensive renovations to accomplish… and you’ll be enjoying the benefits of your stair lift within hours of our arrival!

About Advantage Health
Advantage Home Health Solutions founders – Fran and Phil Hochhausen, have volunteered for many years at a local club and district level of an international service organization with the motto, “Service above Self”.
They wanted to create a business that would take advantage of their volunteer experiences and business skills to help people. With Phil’s knowledge of equipment handling and Fran’s know-how in serving people in the retail sector, they chose to create a business that gives people the opportunity to live safely and independently in their homes.
It is stressful trying to make an informed decision about available products and solutions with little time to do so. Fran and Phil realized the importance of providing timely free-of-charge at-home discussions about choices and options for those searching for mobility and accessibility solutions to ensure a safe, independent situation for themselves or loved ones.

The average straight stairlift installation takes less than 3 hours so you’ll be enjoying it in short order.
Is a Stair Lift a Permanent Fixture?
Stair lifts are installed onto the stair treads of your steps, not the walls, so there is no structural modification needed.They are easily removed when selling your home or moving. If you no longer require your stair lift, Advantage Home Health Solutions will buy back your stair lift depending on age and condition.
Are There Special Power Requirements?
Stair lifts are battery operated and only require a standard 110v wall outlet to charge the batteries (2 x 12v). Since your stair lift is battery operated, it will still work in the event of a power outage.

There are a variety of choices to accommodate 300lbs to 600lbs. We’ll explain the different stair lift models and options during our free consultation.
