When you aren’t in a wheelchair, how often do you think about stairs? When you are in a wheelchair, you think about stairs very often. Why? Because without assistance, navigating stairs in a wheelchair is impossible. This is true for your home as well as at other buildings. You don’t want to have to leave the home you love, so what can you do?
Advances for Daily Living offers wheelchair lifts that provide mobility and accessibility to your home without the need to reconfigure your entire home. Call them today for a free consultation and to learn what options you have when it comes to wheelchair lifts.
You Have Options
You might be surprised to learn that you have options when it comes to wheelchair lifts. Each situation is unique, and one option may not always work for every situation. For example, you may have just two or three steps to get to your home’s front doorway. There are wheelchair lifts that operate similarly to stairlifts in that they follow the staircase up, but the wheelchair lifts have larger platforms. These are also built to be used outdoors so they aren’t a flimsy setup.
In some cases, a wheelchair lift might be more like an elevator. It may be a better alternative to use this style of wheelchair lift depending on your home’s layout and other factors. Regardless of the situation, Advances for Daily Living will work with you to help provide safe assistance in remaining in your home.
Installation Is Easier Than You Think
One of the things that people get concerned with when adding wheelchair lifts to their homes is that they will have a major disruption in their home due to reconfiguring the layout. The goal of Advances for Daily Living is to make installation as painless as possible. This means that when they can, they want to use your existing staircase to add the wheelchair lift to. This results in only minor adjustments, and still allows your stairs to be used normally by others because the wheelchair lift can be moved out of the way.
Even if you end up going with a vertical wheelchair lift, these lifts are fully self-contained. This means that you don’t need to deconstruct your house just to add one. But it does mean that you can once again have safe access to all levels of your home. Being independent is what we all want, and having a wheelchair lift in your home allows you to have that independence again.
