Many older people worry about the cost of moving into residential care as they begin to struggle at home. It can be especially troubling for those who live alone, or do not have the support of close family living nearby. Aside from the cost, most people simply don’t want to leave the comfort and familiarity of their own home.
 
Receiving care at home is a less unsettling option, but one of the biggest obstacles to staying at home can be the stairs. A wide range of age-related medical conditions can make using the stairs difficult and even dangerous, from musculoskeletal problems such as arthritis to other conditions which could leave you breathless or suffering dizzy spells.
 
Thankfully, this is one challenge that is easily overcome in virtually every case, by the installation of an Acorn Stairlift. It effectively allows you to use every level of your home by completely removing the obstacle of stairs. Instead of struggling with the stairs, and risking a potentially catastrophic fall, an Acorn Stairlift enables you to glide smoothly up and down stairs in safety and comfort as often as you like, all at the push of a button.
 
As the stairs become an issue, some people resort to living entirely on one level of their home, perhaps converting a dining room to a bedroom, having downstairs bathroom facilities installed or using a commode. Others consider the unwelcome prospect of moving house, perhaps to a ground floor flat.
 
Installing an Acorn Stairlift eliminates both these scenarios, enabling you to continue using all of your home in safety and without the daily strife of the staircase. Investing in a stairlift is an investment in your continued independence and ability to use and enjoy your whole home. It is also a far more cost-effective option than moving house or having modifications carried out which will still only allow you to use part of your home.
 
At Acorn, we design and make our own stairlifts, sell them, install them and maintain them, so you can get the whole package in one stop. Just book a free, no-obligation home survey and our experienced surveyor will expertly assess your staircase, discuss your needs and answer any stairlift questions you might have. By the end of the visit, our surveyor will be able to give you a comprehensive quote, with no hidden extras.
