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.

How Can I Help the Elders in My Life Age Independently?

Older adults manage to have full, independent, and healthy lives, even those with limited mobility.

Here at Preferred Elevator, we can provide some necessary tools that help our customers age in place. Becoming older doesn’t have to be a bad thing; with age comes wisdom, and you’re only as old as you feel! Older adults manage to have full, independent, and healthy lives, even with limited mobility. One of the best ways to age independently is through home modification. Preferred Elevators installs residential elevators, stairlifts, and wheelchair lifts that enhance mobility. There is also a multitude of other ways that elders can age independently. Keep reading to discover what they are!

Door Delivery

People of all ages use e-commerce and the Internet. Online shopping is emerging and extremely convenient. Online grocery stores save lists and make it easy to reorder food and other necessary items.  Online shopping saves a lot of time but if your loved one needs help transporting the bags from floor to floor and you aren’t available, there’s a solution! Preferred Elevator installs dumbwaiters so that your loved one won’t cause strain to their bodies.

Home Preparations and Modifications

If your loved one has trouble walking up and down the steps, then give us a call. We can explore several options to help them age independently and move around in their home comfortably. Residential elevators used to be so expensive that only the wealthiest homeowners used them, but now they’re a common and affordable home modification. We also offer stairlifts whether the staircase is straight or curved. Another solution is our wheelchair lifts that have indoor and outdoor applications. It’s the summertime so that means that there’s BBQ’s and gatherings galore. Imagine the joy that the elderly in your life will have, being able to move with ease from their deck and yard to the interior of their home easily and independently. 

Another way to prepare the home is to make sure that it’s safe and secure. Alarm systems have advanced tremendously. Home automation helps any adult to surveil their home from their smartphone as well as turn off lights, control thermostats, and even lock doors. Home automation is ideal for any adult that has limited mobility because they can control and see what’s going on in their home without needing to travel downstairs.

Personal Emergency Response Systems (PERS)

With just the touch of a button, PERS helps an older adult in an emergency alert authorities. Remember the Life Alert commercials? Having these devices are crucial in the case of a fall or mishap. One vital part of aging independently is being able to get help quickly when needed. Also, our stairlifts can help to prevent falls in the first place!
