Although the vast majority of people try and keep themselves as fit and mobile as possible as they approach their later years, there will be a time when a lot of these people could benefit from a helping hand. In previous years, this helping hand may have come in the form of assistance from outside, a family member or hired help, but the technology is now here to enable people to not only enhance their mobility but also maintain their independence.
Many people, even those in their later years, don’t have much of a problem getting from A to B in a single storey home, but in a double storey home the stairs can present a challenge. Luckily, modern technology has made life a little easier, so whether you need a straight stair lift in Kidderminster or a curved stairlift in Tamworth, there are specialised companies in your area that can lend a helping hand.
Finding the Right Stairlift and Paying for it
Depending on your personal financial situation, you may be eligible for government funding for a stair lift or any other mobility aid that you need. Some companies even offer mobility aid rental, including stairlifts, if you need a mobility aid rental temporarily or would like a solution that meets with your monthly budget. In the absence of any local authority recommendations, most people will begin their search for mobility aids online, simply type what you are looking for into Google and you should be presented with a number of options that are local to you.
