Projections by www.parliament.uk suggest that in 2050 the number of people aged 65+ will increase from 10,000,000 to 19,000,000. That is an astounding yearly increase of half a million people.
As you get older you may find that as you may not be as mobile as you used to be. Your coordination and balance may be not what is was, making daily tasks much harder. A big problem with a loss of coordination and balance is that it makes using your stairs much more difficult than before.
Surveys carried out in recent years state that falls on the stairs are increasingly common as you get older. But there is a solution to using your stairs in a safe manner and peace of mind. That answer is a stairlift.
Stairlifts have seen a recent boom in the industry as people are more aware of the technology and how it has helped hundreds of thousands of people use their stairs with confidence.
Acorn Stairlifts have a great video on how a stairlift can help.
Recently in the UK it has been Carers week where a group of charities have highlighted the importance of carers. In the same week Acorn Stairlifts urged people to think about how a stairlift both benefits carer and the person being cared for, by releiving both people of the stress that comes with using the stairs.
Acorn’s sales director Jules Allen had this to say “A stairlift can provide a safe, reliable and easy-to-use solution which gives peace of mind both to people being cared for and their carers alike. Added modern functionality including remote control and slimline design increases the efficiency and immense value and benefit of these products as a proven alternative to lifting and carrying disabled people.”
So, as you get older and feel that you may need assistance on the stairs. Why not think of a stairlift.
Acorn Stairlifts yesterday posted up a video about thinking about buying a stairlift. Here it is.
