All I want for Christmas is…

12:00am | & Lifestyle

What’s the very best gift you could give yourself this Christmas?

How about continued independence, being able to remain living in the home you love, with the freedom to use all of it whenever you like, and without a daily struggle or fear for your safety?

That’s the gift an Acorn Stairlift brings when the stairs in your home start to become a daily ordeal. Installing an Acorn Stairlift effectively turns your two-story home into a bungalow by removing the obstacle of stairs at a single stroke, and at a fraction of the cost of moving house.

There are many reasons why the stairs can become more difficult, particularly as we get older. Conditions which affect our physical mobility, such as arthritis, can make climbing the stairs a painful struggle, and coming down them just as tough. It can be unpleasant and uncomfortable and might aggravate swollen and painful joints by ‘jarring’ them.

Other conditions, such as angina or heart disease, mean that climbing the stairs might leave you breathless, light-headed and worn out, perhaps even needing to rest half-way up or down. People who have suffered a stroke can experience significant loss of strength and control, seriously impinging on their mobility, while simply growing older diminishes our physical strength, making the stairs more of a challenge than they used to be.

In all of these scenarios, the biggest fear is the risk of a fall on the stairs. Falling is never good news, wherever it happens, but a fall on the stairs can have far worse consequences for obvious reasons. If you are at risk of falling on the stairs, for whatever reason, then an Acorn Stairlift is not only sound common sense, it is a positive investment in accident prevention and safeguarding your future wellbeing.

Once installed, an Acorn Stairlift can make a huge and instant difference to your life. It takes away the need to ‘soldier on’ with the stairs, replacing the uphill battle with a smooth, effortless ride in safety and comfort. Above all, it eliminates the worry of a fall on the stairs, not only for you but also for loved ones who care about you and your safety.

It also means you can continue enjoying all of your home, just as you’ve always done. No more fretting over the daunting prospect of having to move home late in life, all because of a few stairs.

If an Acorn Stairlift would bolster your quality of life this Christmas, then there’s still time to have one installed. Acorn has set industry-leading response times for the installation of stairlifts on both straight and more complex curved staircases. We can have a high-quality British-made Acorn Stairlift up and running in your home within a few days of your order being placed, even next day in cases where urgency is paramount.

This is partly because we do everything in-house; we manufacture our own stairlifts, sell them direct to our customers, install and maintain them. There are no sub-contractors and no middlemen – we offer a ‘one-stop-shop’ for stairlifts. We also manufacture more than 70,000 stairlifts per year at our UK factories, so you can be assured there’ll be no waiting for parts and components.

If you have a curved stairlift, no-one can match Acorn’s FastTrack® system for response time between order and fitting. This innovative modular rail system means an experienced Acorn engineer can assemble a bespoke stairlift rail, precisely matching the unique contours of your staircase, on site in just a few hours. There’s no waiting weeks for a one-off rail to be designed, fabricated in a factory and despatched to your home.

If you’d like an Acorn Stairlift in time for Christmas, the first step is to book a home visit by one of our nationwide network of Acorn home surveyors. This visit is completely free and with no obligation to buy, but it will answer all your questions about your Acorn Stairlift, including the cost. Only after assessing your staircase and your individual needs will our surveyor be able to provide a comprehensive quote, with no hidden extras and valid for a year.

We believe Acorn Stairlifts offer the best all-round value in the market and we think you’ll be pleasantly surprised at the cost of yours, particularly as an investment in your future wellbeing and continued independence. In any case, your home survey and quote are free, so you’ve nothing to lose.
