As with every other stage of life, growing older comes complete with its own unique set of pros and cons. It’s an unfortunate fact that the cons are probably the aspects of senior living we tend to talk and think about the most.
If you’re someone who has experienced a loss of mobility, for instance, you may be under the assumption that many of the hobbies and past times you once enjoyed will someday soon no longer be available to you. That’s certainly an understandable worry, especially if you live in a home with multiple floors, and with hobby rooms set up in various locations around the house.
Consider the Walinskis: Do They Seem Familiar?
Consider, for instance, the case of the Walinskis, a fictional retired couple who live in a narrow row house with three floors and a finished basement.
Mr. Walinski is a long-time woodworker, and for decades he has maintained a woodshed of sorts in his home’s basement. Over the years, he’s built everything from spice racks to kitchen tables in his basement shop.
Mrs. Walinski, meanwhile, is both a quilter and a macramé artist. Her modest quilting room sits on the home’s second floor, while her macramé studio, a much more opulent affair, takes up half of the den on the house’s main level.
The Walinski’s master bedroom, of course, is on the top floor. And because they both suffer from a debilitating case of arthritis, simply moving from the bedroom to the kitchen each morning is more than a chore; it’s an exercise in pain. No wonder the couple’s once-beloved hobbies have all fallen by the wayside over the past few years.
With a Stairlift NJ, the Walinskis Can Reclaim their Lives, and So Can You
Here at PA Stairlifts, we absolutely live to help people like the Walinskis. People, that is, who think they have no options. People who assume they’re stuck in their own unique circumstance, with no reasonable way out. The look on a customer’s face when they finally understand just how much freedom and mobility one of our stair lifts can give them is the look we live for. It truly is one of the greatest feeling in the world.
Of course, it’s unlikely that PA Stair Lifts is the only stairlift NJ retailer, renter and installer located in your area. So even if we’ve managed to convince you that a stair chair can take Mr. Walinski from his top-floor bedroom to the kitchen to his basement woodshop in record time, with no pain and in total safety, we still need to convince you that PA Stair Lifts is different than our competitors. And yes, we truly believe we are.
PA Stair Lifts Is a Uniquely Different Option
For starters, we exclusively use MediTek stair lifts in every single one of our installations. MediTek makes an unbelievably safe and high-quality product at a surprisingly realistic price point. The company’s continuous charging system, for instance, eliminates troublesome trailing cables or rail end charging stations. It also ensures that the stairlift is charged, regardless of where it is parked. This is essential for long battery life (similar to your car) and low operational costs. MediTek stairlifts use safe, low voltage, maintenance-free battery power, which ensures continued operation (on average up to 30 journeys) in the event of a temporary power outage.
What’s more, our MediTek stair lifts are available in a range of upholstery colors, and the units’ seat height is adjustable from 18 to 24 inches, depending on the height of the user. MediTek even offers a powered seat swivel option, and a linked seat and footrest option. The latter comes into play when a user cannot bend down to lift up the footrest when the unit is folded away.
So if you, like the Walinskis, have begun confining yourself to just one floor of your multi-floor home, please consider giving us a call or sending us an email so that we can discuss your options. Because no matter what your age, and no matter how mobile you may or may not still be, there’s a lot of life to be lived every single day.
We’ve helped thousands of people just like you get the very most out of their waking hours with a stairlift NJ, PA or DE. To learn more, click here to request one of our popular info packs, or simply reach out and talk to us today. We’ll look forward to hearing from you.
