There are many lovely homes in the DC Metro Area, from Olney and Gaithersburg in Montgomery County to Great Falls and Vienna in Fairfax County as well as McLean and Germantown. And when it comes to aging in place, your limited mobility on the stairway could be a complicating factor. With so many options for installing both straight or curved stair lifts, there’s no reason you shouldn’t be able to continue to enjoy your home.
Above all else, safety is the most important reason to consider investing in a stair lift. If your limited mobility makes it difficult for you to ascend and descend the stairs then you may already have had safety concerns at some point. Even with the help of a railing or banister, there are hundreds of cases of injury or death from falls down the stairs every year. And those who are fortunate to avoid a fall may still be causing harm by putting unnecessary strain on themselves from climbing the stairs. Stair lifts are stable and secure and you will always feel safe using them.
If you feel like buying and installing a permanent stair lift is not the right commitment for your life, then renting one could be for you. Stair lift rentals is a great option for people who need the benefits of a stair lift temporarily. In some cases, such as in a multigenerational home, someone may rent a stair lift for their elderly relative to add ease and mobility for them to enjoy the last years of their life. Also, stair lifts aren’t limited to older users, but can be rented for someone recovering from a surgery or injury. And if you feel that purchasing a stair lift is the right choice, there are many pricing options to fit your budget. The long term benefit of investing in a stair lift is often more cost-effective than assisted living or a nursing home.
