Some people might view getting a stairlift as giving in or even surrendering their independence, but in fact, the exact opposite is true. An Acorn Stairlift represents an investment in retaining your independence. It means you can use the stairs in your home safely as often as you like, without needing help from anyone else.
As people struggle with the stairs, they find themselves constricted in how they use their home. It might start in a small way by limiting how often you use the stairs. For example, rather than going upstairs for something when you first think of it, you might wait until the next time you have to go upstairs and grab it then. This can turn into planning your daily routine based on how often you need to use the stairs. Ultimately, you might think of living on one floor, converting a ground floor dining room into a bedroom, or installing a downstairs bathroom. But why limit yourself and stop using parts of the home you love, when an Acorn Stairlift removes the obstacle of stairs? A stairlift lets you use all your home however you like, whenever you like, by giving you access all areas of your home.
You might think you’re fine on the stairs, but your loved ones see you struggling and worry about your safety. A high proportion of interests in Acorn come not from the people who will use our stairlifts, but from concerned members of their families. An Acorn Stairlift will not only assist you, but will give your loved ones peace of mind knowing that you can use the stairs easily when they’re not there, letting them continue with their lives without having to worry.
For many people, going up or down stairs can become an uncomfortable and even painful experience, particularly as they get older and experience reduced mobility. It can leave you out of breath, or in pain from sore joints. Why continue battling the stairs when an Acorn Stairlift can make using them a pleasurable and pain-free experience once again? Once they’ve experienced the enhanced quality of life an Acorn Stairlift brings, many of our customers tell us they only wish they’d got one sooner!
Surely the number one reason for investing in an Acorn Stairlift has to be safety. Unfortunately, a proportion of our customers buy their stairlift after suffering an accident on the stairs. If you are unsteady on your feet, have difficulty with balance, no longer trust the strength in your legs, or get light-headed and worry about blackouts, it’s time to protect yourself. Accidents can happen anywhere in the home, but accidents on the stairs can have much worse outcomes. An Acorn Stairlift lets you use the stairs in safety, free from the worry of falling.
