It’s the start of a new year and therefore the perfect time to make changes to improve our lives.
If you have mobility issues and you struggle to get around your home there is one important change you could make that would bring very real benefits. Why not look into getting a stairlift? Here are reasons why you should consider getting a stairlift in 2023.
Let the stairlift take the strain
If you have health issues that make it difficult to get up and down stairs a stairlift will allow you easy access to all levels of your home. Anyone who suffers from arthritis could find that walking up and down stairs makes painful joints worse. Rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis, can both cause painful inflammation to joints – and this can be aggravated by putting pressure on them. If you have problems bending your knees you might find that a standing stairlift is the best option for you.
Sometimes surgery can make it more difficult to move between floors. When that’s the case a stairlift could be a good temporary option. You could also benefit if you’ve had an injury or if you have a neurological condition like multiple sclerosis or Parkinson’s disease.
If you’re struggling to get up and down stairs you could well find yourself feeling anxious a lot. The mere thought of going to the bathroom or going up to bed can feel like a daunting challenge. If you suffer from problems with your balance you might be worried about having a fall on the stairs. If this sounds like you, a stairlift could well be the answer – removing some of the anxiety surrounding everyday life.
Stay in your own home
If stairs have become problematic you may be thinking about making life easier by moving into a bungalow. While this might be the answer for some people it’s not the best decision for everybody. If you would rather stay in your own home it’s a good idea to look at ways of making that possible. A stairlift could be the solution you’re looking for, contributing to your health, well-being and peace of mind.
A stairlift will give you more freedom and independence, allowing you to get around your home without relying on help from someone else. It will also take the strain off other people who would otherwise need to help you get up and down stairs.
Stairlifts are inexpensive to run and quick to install
Some people worry that they could use a lot of energy – but nothing could be further from the truth! They are actually very cheap to run and are among the most energy-efficient appliances in the home. Figures for July 2022 showed an average weekly running cost of just 40p!
