All I Want this Year is...

12:00am & Lifestyle

What’s the very best gift you could give yourself this holiday?

How about continued independence, being able to remain living in the home you love, with the freedom to use all of it whenever you like and without a daily struggle or fear for your safety?

That’s the gift an Acorn Stairlift brings when the stairs in your home start to become a daily ordeal. Installing an Acorn Stairlift effectively allows you to visit all rooms in your home by removing the obstacle of stairs at a single stroke, and at a fraction of the cost of moving.

There are many reasons why the stairs can become more difficult, particularly as we get older. Conditions which affect our physical mobility, such as arthritis, can make climbing the stairs a painful struggle, and coming down them just as tough. It can be unpleasant and uncomfortable and might aggravate swollen, painful joints by jarring them.

Other conditions, such as angina or heart disease, mean that climbing the stairs might leave you breathless, light-headed and worn out. You might even need to rest half-way up or down. People who have suffered a stroke can experience significant loss of strength and control, seriously impinging on their mobility. Growing older diminishes our physical strength, making the stairs more of a challenge than they used to be.

In all of these scenarios, the biggest fear is the risk of falling on the stairs. Falling is never good news, wherever it happens, but a fall on the stairs can have far worse consequences for obvious reasons. According to the CDC, more than one out of four older people falls each year, and falling once doubles your chances of falling again.* If you are at risk of falling on the stairs, for whatever reason, then an Acorn Stairlift is the safest solution for you.

Once installed, an Acorn Stairlift can make a huge and instant difference to your life. It takes away the need to suffer when climbing the stairs, replacing the uphill battle with a smooth, effortless ride in safety and comfort. Above all, it eliminates the worry of a fall on the stairs, not only for you but also for loved ones who care about you and your safety.

It also means you can continue enjoying all of your home, just as you’ve always done. No more fretting over the daunting idea of having to move home late in life.

If you’d like an Acorn Stairlift this holiday season, the first step is to book a FREE no obligation consultation with one of our nationwide network of Acorn home surveyors. This visit is completely free and with no obligation to buy, but it will answer all your questions about your Acorn Stairlift, including the cost. Only after assessing your staircase and your individual needs will our surveyor be able to provide a comprehensive quote, with no hidden extras and valid for a year.

We believe Acorn Stairlifts offer the best all-round value in the market and we think you’ll be pleasantly surprised at the cost of yours, particularly as an investment in your future wellbeing and continued independence. In any case, your home survey and quote are free, so you’ve nothing to lose.
