7 Signs It is Time to Install a Stairlift

12:00am & Health

From the steep steps progressing to your patio, to the slippery stairs sliding into the swimming pool, staircases are just a daily part of life that you may not pay much attention to. However, when you find yourself become increasingly aware of the stairs, adjusting your daily life and activities around their existence, or avoiding them altogether, you know it is time for a change.

Here at Acorn Stairlifts, we believe that no person should have to compromise their happiness, independence, or quality of life, all because of some pesky stairs. Here are the seven signs that it is time for you to start living your life to the fullest by installing your custom-made chair lift from Acorn, an award-winning company whose mission is to give your life a lift with only the very best stairlifts in the world.

1. You Fear Falling on the Stairs

Stairs are designed to get you from point A to point B with little thought required. If just the sight of a staircase sparks fear and anxiety, or you find yourself worrying about falling on the stairs while using them (and even when you are not using them), then it is time to get yourself a stairlift. Life should not be lived in constant fear. Sit back and relax while you allow your sturdy, dependable Acorn stair chair lift to put in the work and carry the stress, so you never have to.

2. You Experience Pain When Climbing the Stairs

If you experience any kind of pain while using the stairs, whether it stems from a chronic condition, recovering from an injury, or aching joints, it is time to put your pain to rest and install a stairlift. An Acorn stairlift is world-renowned for its ease-of-use commendation, approved by patients with mild to severe Arthritis, as well as people who experience other types of pain or disabilities. Acorn Stairlifts aims to soothe your pain by allowing our simple-to-use, straight-forward stairlifts to do all of the heavy-lifting so that you can pry the pressure off your aching joints.

3. You Climb the Stairs Differently than You Used to

Using the stairs should never be a science. Remember that stairs are not a chance to show off your creativity. If you find yourself struggling to climb the stairs like you used to or using the stairs in any other way besides simply putting one foot in front of the other step by step, it is time to let a stairlift sweep in and show you how it is done. You do not deserve to crawl up the staircase on your hands and knees just to reach your bedroom. In one smooth glide, an Acorn stairlift will transport the precious cargo that you are safely and comfortably to your destination, so you will never have to put your life or body in danger with a risky fall.

4. You Need Assistance to Use the Stairs

Everyone needs assistance at some point in their life, but when you start to feel like a prisoner in your own home, dependent on the help of others, it is time to reclaim your independence with the help of an Acorn stair lift. Rather than feeling trapped in an area of your home, waiting for someone to rescue you, you can navigate your home freely at your own will. Your Acorn chairlift chariot will be available at your beck and call to deliver you to your destination whenever you wish.

5. You Find Yourself Avoiding Stairs

If you find yourself avoiding the activities you love because a menacing staircase stands between you and your happiness, consider getting a stairlift. Whether you love to tend to your lush garden or play a tune on your grand piano on the main floor, Acorn Stairlifts offers a variety of stairlifts tailored to fit any staircase, whether outdoors or indoors, curvy or straight, long or short. Do not let staircases rob you of the pleasures that make life worth living. It is time to let Acorn give your life a lift so that you can start living your life to the fullest today.

6. You are Worried How You Would Escape in an Emergency

If you find your mind constantly playing out stressful scenarios of how you would escape a dangerous situation in the event of an emergency, do not wait to install a stairlift. At Acorn Stairlifts, your health and safety are our main priority. For this reason, Acorn stairlifts go through rigorous safety protocols from being tested 29 times by our quality assurance team in our own factories, to undergoing a 37-point checklist by our installation engineers as part of the fitting process in your home.

7. You Constantly Worry about the Safety of Your Loved One

Even if you personally may not struggle on the stairs, you cannot help but worry about your loved ones who do. Your mind may be constantly tormented by scary scenarios of the ones you love most suffering serious injuries from a fall or straining themselves, wincing in pain while dragging their weakening bodies up and down the stairs. Not only can you help alleviate their pain, discomfort, and risk of falling with an Acorn stairlift, but you can give yourself peace of mind knowing that your loved one is safe, taken care of, and in good hands with Acorn Stairlifts.
