A challenge for seniors in Atlanta can be climbing stairs in their homes. In order to promote safety, prevent falls, assist with activities of daily living and avoid accidents, seniors in Atlanta should consider installing stair lifts. There are different types of stair lifts, including wall mounted chair lifts, perch lifts, standing stair lifts, DC stair lifts (battery powered) and AC (non battery powered) chair lifts and elevators. Stair lifts have safety features that seniors in Atlanta will find helpful. Seat belts on the stair or chair lifts will help to avoid further injuries. Stair lift sensors will detect if objects are in the way and stop the chair lift if there are obstructions. Stair lifts require less modification to the home. With their safety and health benefits, stair lifts, chair lifts or elevators help seniors in Atlanta with limited mobility to live easier and safer lives in their homes.

Atlanta Chair Lifts | Stair Lifts | Wheelchair Lifts | Elevators

A stair lift, wheel chair lift, or elevator may be just the thing you need to keep you from having to move to a one-story home. There are many wonderful options these days.

When you have your installation performed by a contractor who is state certified and insured, you can be confident that everything is done correctly and safely. To insure your lift is covered by your Home Owners insurance, make sure your installer provides you with the Georgia Dept. of Labor's installation permit. (This is part of your cost.)

When considering any type of contractor, it is always advisable to call at least six of their references. Ask for details about the experience each had with the contractor. If it is all good, continue by saying, "Please tell me of any little problem you may have had with this person." This last question tells the person called that it is okay to talk about any minor problems, which may or may not be minor to you.

If money is an issue, you may want to investigate obtaining a Reverse Mortgage, especially if you need some home improvements to be able to stay in your home as long as possible.

As always, call the Better Business Bureau to make sure there have been no reported complaints. (This number is located in the Quick Guide of your SRD: 404-688-4910).
