Where Can I Get Advice about Stairlifts

Many of us get to a stage in our lives where our mobility is reduced.  This can be due to a variety of reasons, such as obesity, illness, injury or simply because of old age.  Rather than having to move home or having to live in the confines of our ground floor rooms, it is now possible to purchase or hire stairlifts to help us get up and down stairs.  However, knowing that this option exists is no good if we don’t know how to go through with it.  In order to find out whether we are suitable candidates for a stairlift we need to ask people for advice.

Where Can I Get Advice about Stairlifts – Charities

One great place to get advice about stairlifts is from charities who focus on helping the elderly.  The best charity by far to contact would be Age UK.  Age UK works in partnership with Handicare, one of the United Kingdom’s main manufacturers of stairlifts.  There are a number of benefits to seeking advice from Age UK, including:

  • You will be able to  get free advice from people that specialise in issues affecting the elderly
  • You will receive a wealth of free, interesting and comprehensible information on stair lifts
  • You can request a free, no obligation consultation and quotation
  • Age UK will always match any like for like quote you receive from somewhere else, hence guaranteeing you will receive the best deal for your needs
  • You will be supporting one of the most important charities in the United Kingdom

Where Can I Get Advice about Stairlifts – Health Care Professionals

If you are finding you are struggling with your mobility, you will more than likely have already sought medical advice.  Medical professionals have a wealth of information concerning items that improve the quality of life of people that suffer from any kind of condition and would be able to not only advise you on whether or not a stair lift may be a good option for you, they will also be able to put you in contact with relevant organisations as well as possibly having knowledge on any financial assistance that may be available to you.

Where Can I Get Advice about Stairlifts – Manufacturers

One other place to go to get advice about stairlifts is directly from manufacturers.  If you do decide to travel this route, it is generally advised that you contact and receive quotations from at least three different companies.  This will enable you to make sure that you are given the correct advice (each company should give you the same advice), as well as the correct price (although prices may differ slightly, there should not be a tremendous price difference between the different quotations).

As you can see, if you are looking on advice on where to get stairlifts, there are quite a few avenues open to you, to help you ensure that you get the most relevant stairlift to suit your needs at a price that you can afford.
