A stair lift can make life easier and less painful
Many of our neighbors in the High Point area are finding that the longer you live, the less you like having to deal with a staircase every day. Many folks have knee or hip problems, and going up and down those stairs just makes them hurt more.
But, with stair lifts, you don’t ever have to worry about the pain climbing stairs causes you again.
About stair lifts
Essentially, a stair lift is a chair on a motorized railway which is able to go up and down a staircase. Sometimes, these products are also referred to as stairlifts, chair lifts or stair gliders.
The primary focus of these stair lifts is to safely get people up and down a set of stairs. Many products today are able to accomplish this, as well as blend well into a person’s home.
For people who are a little older, stair lifts can help you regain the use of the other levels of your home, such as upstairs bedrooms, bathrooms or studies. They are particularly attractive for folks who sometimes have a difficult time going up and down stairs. Or, for those who want to prepare for their future by getting their homes ready for late life.
The primary benefit of stair lifts is safety. Since falls are responsible for more accidents in the home than any other cause, these products can help save you from injuries and the associated medical expenses.
Safe living solutions offers a wide variety of stair lift models to suit the look of your home, as well as a variety of features in the different models and installation services that will help them perform the way you need them to. There are models available for interior or exterior staircases.
Making your home safe & easy to use
The truth is that a stair lift takes the effort out of going up and down stairs. It not only will make life easier, it also will remove the obstacle that those stairs present to you or your family member.
It also will make your home more safe, by helping to keep you safe from falls.
Peace of mind
The truth is, we worry about our friends and family that are growing older or who may have difficulties at home. Stair lifts can help alleviate some of that worry.
If your parents are aging in place, then safety should be a concern for you. Knowing that a stair lift is there to help reduce the chances that they’ll fall, while giving them access to their entire home, will certainly reduce the stress you feel about their safety at home.
Of course, they also will have greater peace of mind knowing they can safely do the things they need and want to do in their own home.
Frequently asked questions
How much does a curved stair lift cost?
Every stair way is different to some degree, as are the stair lift products available. According to HomeAdvisor:
“The national average to install an elevator or chairlift is $4,394, with most homeowners spending between $2,620 and $6,247. However, total cost can increase significantly depending on the location and type of home.

Can they go around a corner?
Stair lifts can either be made to go strait, or around curves and corners. Today’s railing materials allow to adjust the track for the curves needed.
Does the VA cover stair lift cost and installation?
The Department of Veterans Affairs offers several grants that can be used to help pay for a stair lift in your home. After qualification, a veteran could receive a HISA grant, SHA grant and/or a SAH grant.
There are specific requirements for both the veteran and your home. Contact the VA to apply for any of these grants. To learn more about these grants call 1-800-827-1000.
Will it affect the value of my home?
Installing a stair lift will not depreciate the value of your home. If you are planning on selling your High Point home, or think you may in the future, the stair lift can be safely removed before or after it sells.
Why is installation so expensive?
For safety and warranty reasons, stair lifts must be installed precisely as prescribed by the manufacturer. Failure to do so could endanger you or a loved one.
Also, since each home is constructed differently, accommodations must be made to ensure the stair lift is installed in a way that will not only look nice, but also be safe for you.
Our team of professionally trained technicians and installers are there to ensure your product is installed properly, safely and will continue to work for you for the long-term.
