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.

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.

New Year’s Resolutions for Older Adults

New Year's Resolutions for Older Adults Preferred Elevator

Anyone and everyone can achieve their New Years’ resolutions

The end of 2020 is almost here, which means that millions of people have New Year’s resolutions in mind. For people of all ages, the new year is the perfect time for a fresh start. Here are a few of many New Year’s resolutions that older adults can put on their lists.

Fit in More Workouts to Your Schedule

When you exercise, you can combat a lot of health problems such as diabetes and a slew of cardiovascular issues. Even with limited mobility, low-impact workouts exist that won’t put any strain on your joints. 

Take On a New Hobby

It is never too late to take on a new hobby or learn something new. When you seek out new experiences, it opens the door to many emotional and cognitive benefits. Change doesn’t have to be scary. On the contrary, change can be quite positive. Whether it’s knitting, learning how to play a new board game or a new instrument, or mastering video chatting, you never have to be bored. 

Take Care of Your Mental Health

It’s an understatement to say that 2020 has been a challenging year. Everyone should always make an effort to take care of their mental health. There are many things that you can do to achieve this goal. Although it may seem small, adding things to your New Year’s resolutions such as “get a full night’s rest,” “meditate,” and “video chat with my friends and family more” often make a significant difference. You can also add “start asking for help more” to the list. Everyone needs help sometimes. A little bit of self-care goes a long way. 

Assess Your Physical Wellbeing

Has walking up and down the stairs become harder and harder to do? If so, one of your top New Year’s Resolutions should be addressing your physical wellbeing. You should keep up with doctors’ appointments and research the top ways to make moving around more comfortable. Modifying your home may be one of the best ways to help you navigate your home comfortably. When you purchase one of our lifts, you can check off “age in place” on your New Year’s resolution list. If you’d like to learn more valuable information about how our products can add convenience and comfort to your life, reach out to Preferred Elevator today.
