If you have a senior loved one who lives in a home with stairs, you should very seriously consider installing a stairlift for their safety. We’ve all heard the horror stories, or for too many of us have tragically experienced our own with a loved one, where an elderly person has had a horrible accident falling down the stairs. Sadly it is far too common today. With Baby Boomers, another 60 million people and the largest generation of retiree aged individuals to date, adding to the ranks of the elderly there will be even more senior citizens susceptible to the dangers of falling down the stairs.

Falls down the stairs are the 14th leading cause of fatalities among senior citizens today. Unfortunately there are thousands of calamitous injuries suffered by senior citizens who fall down the stairs each and every year now. Broken hips, broken legs, fractured skulls, these are all serious injuries that seniors with brittle bones suffer from falling down the stairs. These injuries can take seniors months or years to recover from, if they ever fully recover at all.

More and more Senior citizens suffer injuries falling down the stairs each and every year. Take a story from the AP Newswire posted on March 17. 2017 (http://krqe.com/ap/falls-are-taking-a-huge-and-rising-toll-on-elderly-brains/), reporting on a study that more elderly people are suffering from traumatic brain injuries and head trauma from falls than ever before. The thought and potential devastation is frightening. That is why a stairlift makes sense for any senior citizen with a flight of stairs in their home. Stairlifts offer the elderly independence and the ability to safely navigate the stairs at the same time. Here are a few details regarding stairlifts:

  • Easy to use, controlled by simple left or right handed one hand controls
  • Quiet and reliable
  • Provides safety and independence
  • Will stop when blocked by an obstruction for safety
  • Quick and easy installations
  • Battery back-ups so no dangers during a power outage
  • Custom fit to each and every different stairway
  • Helps prevent pain and suffering while allowing mobility

Stair lifts are easy to use and operate and are custom fit to stairs in individual homes. For seniors, if just to save wear and tear on joints and bones, a stairlift in any home with stairs makes sense. For those who love a senior, a stairlift that saves a loved one like mom or dad is absolutely priceless.
