It’s important you consider a stairlift at the right time for you. We are all very different and your health will determine when it is the right time to ask the question – Should I get a stairlift?
We very often hear people say things to us like, “I don’t want a stairlift yet, because the stairs are good exercise” or “I don’t want to give up using my legs just yet”.
It’s very important for us all to stay as fit and healthy as we can, this should help us live a longer happier lifestyle. However, what a lot of people don’t know is that the most common accident to have at home is a fall and the stairs are the highest contributor to falls around the house. You can fall at any age, but statistics prove, people over the age of 65 are more prone to having a fall at home.
In fact, around 3 million people aged 65 or older will end in A&E after having had an accident at home every year. This is at a cost of around £2 billion to the NHS and takes up 4 million hospital bed days each year.
No one wants to go to hospital and with the additional threat of the Covid-19 infection, it’s essential we all take precautions to stay independent and safe at home.
So, if you are struggling to get up the stairs, the chances are a stairlift will help you. Don’t struggle, just contact us for some additional advice.
Do I need a HAP assessment? What does it offer me?
When you have had an illness that disrupts your mobility, whether that’s for the short or long term, you will more than likely have an Occupational Therapist involved in your recovery plan or be advised to have a private assessment.
An Occupational Therapist is a trained professional who will assess you and your environment in order to advise and obtain equipment to help in your recovery and for any longer lasting mobility issues.
At Love Stairlifts we have teamed up with one of the UK’s foremost Occupational Therapy consultancies who have helped in producing our unique FREE Home And Physical assessment which allows us to make sure we ask the right questions and advise on the correct stairlifts for you.
Our HAP assessment is our thorough checklist which allows us to not only get the correct stairlift for you for today, but makes sure its right for your future too. We believe that from the HAP assessment we’ll be able to offer you the right stairlift options to you, but if we feel your needs are more complex, we will happily get a trained Occupational Therapist to give you a call and discuss your needs in greater detail.
All our advice is FREE of charge and our HAP assessment is FREE too because at Love Stairlifts we believe that having the assessment will guide you to making the right choice in stairlift, no matter where you choose to purchase from.
