Who might consider a lift chair for stairs?
A lift chair for stairs enhances mobility. We all have those days that are more difficult than others; our aches and pains impair our mobility. Climbing each stair can feel like leaping a hurdle at the Olympics. What’s it really like? Let’s listen to someone who might be considering an electric lift chair for stairs.”
“Why am I looking at a “handicap stair chair?” I don’t feel handicapped. I walk pretty well – just a bit slower. I do need a little help with the stairs – so I’m considering a lift chair for stairs. An electric lift chair for stairs would make my life easier. Since the hip operation, I have less pain but I’m more careful. The stairs take some effort. Sometimes I side step and hold the rail with both hands – when no one’s around – I wouldn’t want Sally and the boys to worry. That might start them talking about a home. I like MY home – although it can be a pain in the hip when I forget my glasses or the mail downstairs. Got to plan those trips; I can only carry so much in my sweater. Going upstairs isn’t so bad – but reaching for the next stair coming down is a little scary…that’s when I start thinking about a lift chair for stairs.“
