Elevators installed with more than 4 inches of “gap space” between the hoistway doors and the elevator car doors can pose a serious safety risk. Children may become entrapped in the space and could be seriously injured or killed. This risk can be reduced with the proper installation of space guards at each floor.

3 Benefits Of Aging In Place

How could you household benefit from a stairlift?

Discover the benefits of aging in place.

There might come a time in your life when you need to decide if you want to continue to live in your home or move into a facility designed  for Senior living.  If you move into a place such as a nursing home, you are not truly guaranteed the quality of life and care you will receive.  Plus, many nursing homes are overcrowded and very expensive. Luckily, you can live in your home comfortably at any age with the assistance of elevators, wheelchair lifts and stairlifts.  Discover a few of the benefits of Aging in Place.

Safety Is Key

One of the major benefits of aging in your own home is that you get to be safe and healthy in a comfortable environment.  Depending on the facility you would live in, you might be limited on the attention and care you would receive. Many facilities are overcrowded, so there is a high chance for germs and illness to spread.  If you age in place, you still have control your home and what occurs on a daily basis. If you need assistance getting up and down the stairs, you can invest in a stairlift so that you can travel safely.

Stay Comfortable

With all of the advancements being made in technology, it is easier than ever for seniors to maintain their comfortable lifestyle in their homes.  Preferred Elevator offers several products you can customize so that all of your needs are met. We can design elevators, stairlifts, and dumbwaiters so that they can improve your daily tasks.  When living in a nursing home, your schedules will be changed. If you age in place with a stairlift or an elevator, you can maintain your comfortable lifestyle in your neighborhood, surrounded by your community

Family First

If you choose to live in a senior living facility, you won’t be able to see your family members and loved ones as often as you want.  Assisted living facilities tend to regulate social time with family members. If you age in place, your family members and friends can come over whenever and assist you with whatever you need.
