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.

Signs Your Parents Could Use a Stairlift

Signs Your Parents Could Use a Stairlift

If you aren’t sure if your parents could need a stairlift, here are some signs that it could be a good idea.

Do you have parents who have either entered their golden years or are dealing with physical limitations? If so, it will be difficult for them to get around their homes. One way to deal with this problem is to have a stairlift installed for them. If you aren’t sure if your parents could need a stairlift, here are some signs that it could be a good idea.

Your Parents Have Fallen While Using the Stairs

If you see that your parents are having trouble safely using the stairs, this should not be ignored. Falling down stairs is a serious safety concern, and if your parents have fallen before, there’s the chance of this happening again.

A stairlift can address this issue handily. This way, they will simply need to sit down and let the stairlift carry them where they need to go. This gives your parents significant improvements to safety around the house.

They Don’t Want to Leave Home Anymore

Have you noticed that your parents are hesitant to leave their home? It’s possible they are hesitant because they don’t want to fall down any stairs that may be outside, depending on the house.

They won’t have to worry about this problem anymore if a stairlift is installed. With a new stairlift, they can leave the house without having to worry about falling down any stairs that are outside.

Their Doctor Has Recommended a Stairlift to Them

In some scenarios, a doctor may have told your parents that they should install a new stairlift, based on their health conditions. Medical issues such as arthritis, strokes, and conditions that can weaken the heart all give your parents an incentive to invest in a stairlift which can give them less stress and strain while using their stairs.
