Advantages of stair lifts in the home

Stair lifts can be a blessing to those with mobility issues. They will carry you between the different levels of your home with ease. But, some people are hesitant to install one in their home, mainly because of the cost. Here’s a few things to keep in mind if you are considering purchasing a stair lift:

  • The cost of a fall can be much greater than the cost of a stair lift. Medicare estimates that the medical expenses associated with falls can carry a price tag between $14,306 and $21,270.
  • It means you can stay in your home. More and more Americans are aging in place. For many of them, this means staying in a house that’s already paid for. You can save on the costs of moving and purchasing a new home.
  • Staying put gives you peace of mind. Many seniors struggle with depression once they have to leave a house where they have years of memories and emotional ties. This will save you from having to deal with a host of issues that come with the onset of depression.
  • Your loved ones will have more peace of mind. You’ll have one more fall hazard removed from the home, so they will feel better about you staying in your house.
  • The cost of a stair lift is far less than the cost of an assisted living facility or a nursing home.
  • You will be safer in case of inclement weather. Being able to get down the stairs to the basement when a tornado hits is crucial. If you are struggling to get up and down the stairs, you may waste the valuable time you need to get to safety.

Here at Bellin Health Home Care Equipment, we want you to retain your independence and remain in your beloved home.
