COVID-19 Notice

Preferred Elevator would like to assure our customers that we are taking all necessary steps to do our part in flattening the curve of COVID-19. We have developed a “No Family Contact” process for service, repairs and installations. Our Mechanic, who will be wearing a mask and gloves, will call you when we are at your front door and will discuss the issues or concerns you have with your unit. Our customer can then unlock the door, but there is no need to further greet the Mechanic or be present for the service, repair or installation. Please feel free to move to another part of the home while we are working. Final payment can be left for technician or can be done over the phone with our office.
We greatly appreciate your business during this time.

Sincerely,
Ken Gough

How Aging in Place Can Benefit Your Life

Benefits of Aging in Place Preferred Elevator

Aging in place can ensure that you don’t jeopardize your independence

One of the top reasons homeowners modify their homes is because they’re interested in aging in place. “Aging in place” merely means that you can stay in your home during your elder years. Home modifications such as stairlifts and residential elevators can alleviate some issues that come with age, making aging in place more achievable. For example, if you’re noticing that you’re having mobility issues, but you’d like to remain independent, and in your home, you should give us a call. We can discuss available options that will make navigating through your home safer and more comfortable. In the meantime, let’s delve into how aging in place can benefit your life. 

You Won’t Have to Jeopardize Your Independence.

People are creatures of habit, and many people like keeping a particular routine. When you modify your home and stay in it, you can control your schedule, activities, and life decisions. Everyone needs help, and you should never be afraid to ask for help when you need it. However, it’s reassuring to know that if you need to travel from your bedroom to your living room, you can do so without the risk of falling and without needing help. 

Familiarity  

Once again, people are creatures of habits. We like what’s familiar to us because it’s comforting. When you have to transition from living in your home to going to a nursing home, this can be a life-changing adjustment. A person could travel all around the world, but there isn’t any place like home. Homes provide sentimental value for anyone, especially older adults who have lived in their homes for decades. When you age in place, you stay in the space that you cherish the most. 

Aging in Place is the Safer and Healthier Option

During this pandemic, there has been a lot of skepticism about communal spaces. When you’re in your home, you have control over who’s around you. Plus, you can control the cleanliness of your home. Plus, when we talk about “health,” we’re not only referring to germs. Emotional and mental health matters as well. When you have to leave your home, it can take a significant toll on your emotional health. 

With this in mind, we’re not advising against living in a nursing home. Aging in place may not be beneficial for every situation. However, if your goal is to stay in your home and this option works best for you, it is more than possible. About 90% of seniors living in the United States want to age in place. If you’re among this 90% and noticing a decline in your mobility, you can count on Preferred Elevator to find some viable options that can help restore your independence.
