Navigating stairs

In last week’s blog, we talked about shower safety and what Older Americans can do to make this ordinary task a little easier. For today’s blog, we’re going to talk about another aspect of the home that can become daunting to those with limited mobility: the stairs

A number of retirees find themselves leaving beloved homes because they just can’t go up and down the stairs anymore. Fortunately, there are a number of products that can help make stair navigation easier—and they don’t require major home renovations!

Stair Lifts

These handy chairs are mounted onto gliders, and the gliders themselves attach to the surface of each step, making them very sturdy. There are little controls on the armrests, so you can reverse, stop or start it as you need to.

Many Older Americans tend to shy away from them because they can be pricey; however, the cost of installing one in the home is much cheaper than moving into an assisted living facility! Another hesitation is that they may take up too much room. However, most stair lifts can fold up when you’re not using them, thus saving you space.

Electric Scooter Store has a wide range of stair lifts to choose from, and we’re sure to have one that fits your needs—and your budget!

Ramps

These can be installed over existing outdoor steps. Many people tend to think of them as only something wheelchair users have, but they can be very handy for those with limited mobility as well! They allow you to go up and down while still using your walker or cane, and they allow you to get around without having to put pressure on your knees.

Electric Scooter Store is dedicated to helping you stay in your home well into retirement. Contact us today if you have any questions about our products or services.
