Safer Homes with Accessibility Upgrades

Home safety is a matter of constant assessment and reassessment. Are your smoke detectors filled with fresh batteries? Is your chimney clean enough to be safe for fires? Are your power outlet plugs tight enough or have they become loose over the years?

See what I mean? And this is just the tip of the iceberg. Of course, if you’ve been a homeowner for a while, these types of concerns are nothing new to you. With each seasonal change, a new list of projects and general upkeep evolves.

When you think about home safety, however, have you considered each family member’s ability to make it up and down the stairs safely and easily? Sometimes we overlook the obvious and just assume that the risk of falling is something that goes along with aging.

Not true. It’s simply another opportunity to assess risk and make an appropriate decision based on logic. For a large number of people, a stair lift is the difference between staying in the family home and having to give it up.

And for those who ignore the risks and continue to walk up and down stairs despite experiencing unsteadiness, why do this to yourself and your loved ones? Your friends and family want you safe and independent—not laid up injured or in the hospital.

So take an appraisal of your home’s levels and whether or not a stair lift would increase the general safety around your home. You’ll be glad you did, and the real joy will be in the peace of mind, knowing that all family members can utilize the full house without worry or assistance.
