As we enter our senior years, it can become a problem to climb the stairs and when you consider how many times you would do that in a day, it can limit you somewhat. Is it dangerous to attempt to go upstairs when you have mobility issues? Yes, very much so, especially if you live alone. It is a good move to have a stairlift installed, as you retain your independence and can safely negotiate the stairs.

Stairlifts

You may have heard of these amazing devices and there is a company that offers new stairlifts in Gloucester; they can easily be contacted online and are always happy to pay you a home visit and take a look at your staircase. The unit is a slimline design and doesn’t hamper non-users in any way, plus the unit can be self-operated by the user, so no supervision is needed. Whether you have a straight or curved staircase, the design will be bespoke, fitting your staircase perfectly and regular maintenance ensures smooth operation.

Round the clock support

Once the stairlift is installed, the team would book the first service, when moving parts are checked and in the unlikely event there are any issues, you have an emergency number that you can call. The latest generation of stairlifts offer a safe journey up or down and operation is effortless, with instruction from the installers on how to use the unit.
