However, the products & services Adapt a Home provide can help you to continue living in the home you love!

Lifts & Stair Lifts

The idea of selecting & buying lifts & stair lifts: a through the floor, step lift or stairlift and having it fitted may seem daunting at first; however, most solutions can usually be installed and running within a couple of hours. Many factors can determine which type of lift solution best suits your needs. Every year thousands of people look for a solution to the problems they have using the staircase in their own home. The decision to install a step lift or stairlift can sometimes seem to be a difficult one to take, but when compared with the alternative of moving house, or just living on one level of their home, many people have found either a lift or a stairlift to be their preferred mobility solution. We can provide multiple options and models of lifts & stairlifts which are shown at the bottom of this page.

Help & Advice:

We have multiple articles in our Help & Advice Area that will guide you through the assessment/survey process that helps us find the best solution for you and your home, along with other guidance on the lifts themselves and the optional manual or powered features that you may benefit from. The information provided here is not an alternative to an individual assessment.

Common Stairlift Mistakes:

It’s advisable that a stairlift covers the whole staircase. Some people will attempt to save costs by installing a straight stairlift on a curved staircase and attempt to manage the first or last few steps unaided. However, if their condition deteriorates, they may no longer be able to manage this and the stairlift may have to be modified or changed completely to enable full travel of the stairs. Progressive conditions: Someone who has a condition that would be expected to deteriorate should consider what their best long-term solution will be. Although they may be able to use a seated stairlift now, it may be appropriate to consider a through-floor lift to have the option of travelling through floors in a standing position lift or even with a wheelchair in the future.
