For anyone with mobility issues, finding ways to make the world around you more accessible can be a constant battle. While you may not have control of the measures your local restaurant or shopping precinct puts in, you do have the ability to change your surroundings at home.
And, the great news is, it doesn’t have to cost the Earth.
While many people take access to all areas as a given, those with mobility issues are only too aware of how being in a wheelchair, or having other problems with walking or climbing a set of stairs, can impact on daily living and that all-important sense of well-being. Innovative and cost effective mobility solutions that can be easily and quickly installed make all the difference.
At the Versatile Lift Company, we specialise in working closely with home owners to make sure their accessibility needs are met. There’s a wide range of lifts and ramps now available that can make a big difference to your quality of life. Here are just a few ideas:
When people think about mobility aids in the home, the first thing that comes to mind is the stairlift. These are basically seats or platforms that travel up the stairs on a specially installed rail. They can be either straight or curved and we can normally fit one on any staircase. We always provide a no obligation, free quote, so if you are not sure this is the best solution for you, give us a call and we’ll be able to assess your staircase and give you the best advice we can.
Front and back doors are always an issue for those in wheelchairs. Installing a simple, low gradient ramp is a great solution for most household needs. For situations where the climb is a little steeper, we can install a step lift that is easy to maintain and use. That means you no longer have to worry about getting in and out when you want to.
Home Lift Installations
Of course, depending on the design on your home, you may like to opt for a different solution if you want to get between floors. That can include installing a home lift. Many of these models can be put in within a day or two and don’t involve invasive building work that can be highly disruptive. It can be the perfect solution for your home whether you are in a wheelchair or have other mobility issues.
At the Versatile Lift Company, we’ve had over ten years of experience dealing with homes all over the North West. Our assessment team and our installers bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise to all domestic situations which means you’ll be sure of getting the right mobility aid that is perfect for your situation.
