Stair Lifts Can Preserve Legacies
Installing a stair lift is the easiest way out to stay in your own home. There is no need to move to nursing homes or assisted communities when a stair lift is installed in the home.
Illinois, June 24, 2016 (Newswire.com) - Our company, DME Elevators and Lifts, has been providing home elevators and stairlifts to people in Illinois, Indiana, and Wisconsin since 1977. The work is very meaningful to us, because we assist individuals who are facing mobility challenges. When we successfully install a stair lift into a client's home, we are transforming his or her life in a very positive manner. It is difficult to maintain an upbeat attitude when the staircase in your home looms as a challenge, and the installation of a stairlift can be truly transformative.
There are people of all ages who can find it hard to navigate stairs for one reason or another. However, this is an issue that often impacts senior citizens. During our current era, there is unprecedented aging of the population underway, and this is a very significant phenomenon. The baby boomer generation is comprised of people who were born between 1946 and 1964. A great many babies were born during this postwar era, and they are obtaining senior citizen status right now. The United States Department of Health and Human Services tells us that seven out of every 10 seniors will someday need living assistance.
Many senior citizens who need help with their day-to-day needs reside in nursing homes or assisted living communities. These facilities are very expensive. A single year in a nursing home could cost you over $100,000, and in Illinois, the average monthly charge for a room in an assisted living community is almost $4000. That's a lot of money, and in many cases, a stairlift can be a home-improvement that allows a senior to remain at home. Yes, there is an initial investment required when you purchase a stair lift, but it can save you a great deal of money in the long-run, and it can preserve the legacy that you would like to leave behind to your loved ones.
You may be thinking that your family won't have to worry about long-term care costs because you, or an aging loved one, will qualify for Medicare coverage at the age of 65. The truth is that Medicare does not pay for a stay in a nursing home or assisted living community.
