Stairlift in the Home

Home Stairlifts 

A Stairlift (Chairlift) from Accessibility Solutions can be a life-changing addition to you or a loved one’s home since it will enable anyone with mobility problems to have full, safe access to different levels of a house. Today, considering the stress and high cost of moving, many people are deciding to remain in their current homes. However, as people age or experience an unexpected injury or surgery, stairs can quickly become an obstacle. A practical solution would be the installation of a chairlift. In this blog, we will address several of the most common inquiries that we receive about stairlifts.

What type of stairlift should I buy?  Not all stairlifts are alike, just as all staircases are not alike. First, you should look at your stairway design. Is it a simple straight staircase or does it include a landing or a rail that curves?  After you determine the type of stairlift best for your home, it’s time to look at the different lifts based on style and cost. We sell straight stairlifts from Bruno, Harmar, and Handicare. Our lifts can be installed both indoors and outdoors.

Straight Stairlifts –  Are designed for stairways without landings or turns. These lifts are very popular in homes due to their affordability, quick installation, and reliability. Their simple design can fit most stairway widths or lengths. Straight stairlifts are battery-powered units that recharge automatically at designated places along the stair rail. Straight stairlifts are available in three categories: Economy, Premium, or Heavy-Duty

Curved Stairlifts – These premium stairlifts are designed for staircases that curve or change directions at a landing. Curved stairlifts are custom-designed, and as a result, cost more than a standard stair chair. However, a curved stairlift is an affordable alternative to installing an elevator or relocating to a one-level home.

Outdoor Stairlifts – A stairlift will improve safe access to the outdoor spaces we enjoy such as patios, yards requiring access by stairs, porches with steps or decks. These lifts can be built for any stair configuration, and have high-quality, weatherproof components. An added bonus is that outdoor lifts don’t require excavations or new construction.

So you’ve decided on the necessity of a stairlift to ensure safety using your home’s stairway. If you are purchasing a stairlift due to age or a disability, then a permanent lift is an excellent option. However, there are times when you may only need a stairlift for a shorter period of time. or you prefer affordable monthly payments instead of paying for a stair chair all at once – there are many situations.No worries! Accessibility Solutions offers affordable stairlift rentals for short-term use. Stairlift rentals are our most affordable mobility solution. After installation, you only pay a monthly rental fee. When you no longer need the stairlift, our technicians will uninstall it from your home. Here is our rental cost breakdown:
