There are some things that we just have to accept in life, and aging is one of those things that will happen whether we want it to or not. If you have stairs in your Wausau, Schaumburg, Evanston, La Crosse, Onalaska, Tomah, and the surrounding area home, then you likely know that the stairs have the potential for injuries. You can instead remove the hazards associated with the stairs by having our team at Access Elevator install a stair lift in your home. Stair lifts are a great option to help people age in place rather than forcing them to move to a new home that isn’t familiar, and they don’t like as well. Contact our team to learn more about getting a stair lift installed at your home.
What To Know About Stair Lifts
A stair lift is essentially a chair that rides a rail that is secured to the stairs that will carry a person up or down between floors. The stair lift is powered by electricity and has a battery under the chair that will allow you to use the stair lift several times even if the power goes out. While a trained technician should install a stair lift, the homeowner does not need to get any permission to have one installed. We offer stair lifts that work for both straight stairs as well as stairs that change direction between floors.
While you can come in to one of our showrooms to see the different models of stair lifts, once you have chosen your stair lift model we will come out to your home to measure the stairs and make sure that your stair lift installation goes smoothly. And stair lifts can be installed both indoors and outdoors, so you have a variety of installation options to allow you to use your home to the fullest extent.
Consider a Temporary Stairlift Installation
This is an option that many people don’t think of, but it is possible to rent a stair lift for your home. Why would you do this? If you were thinking about having one permanently installed, this is a way to see if you like it and it serves your needs. In other cases, you may have someone who is only temporarily needing assistance moving between floors, such as after a surgery or an accident. A temporary stair lift installation can be the right answer for many situations.
Whether you are looking at options for aging in place in the home that you love, or you are looking for a temporary option for a family member that is having difficulty navigating the stairs in your home in Wausau, Schaumburg, Evanston, La Crosse, Onalaska, Tomah, and the surrounding areas, a stair lift is a great solution.
