Stairlifts are a great way to help your parent age-in-place. If your loved one doesn’t want to leave their home, but they have a staircase in between them and their bedroom, a stairlift is the perfect solution. Here’s what you’ll need to know to get your parent a stairlift.
What is a Stairlift?
A stairlift is a motorized chair that attaches to a rail and can transport people up and down a staircase. They can be straight-railed or even installed on a curved staircase. Stairlifts can come in a wide-variety of models with different useful features including safety belts, folding seats, smart sensors, backup battery power, and more!
How do I get my Parent a Stairlift?
Typically, a stairlift installation requires that a stairlift installation company come to the home to gather the exact measurements to ensure a perfect fit. Then, the stairlift’s track will be custom-cut to fit your parent’s staircase. Sometimes, electrical outlets will need to be moved or installed to allow the stairlift to plug in without running a cord across the floor. Once fully installed, the stairlift will be ready to use at the touch of a button!
