Have you found your ‘forever home’, the place where you want to live out your golden years?
You might move house several times throughout your working life, climbing the property ladder towards your perfect place to retire. A place to call your own, where you’re content to settle down and stay put.
But have you considered what could disrupt that dream… and taken positive steps to prevent it? In too many cases, it’s the stairs in a two-storey home that can turn it from the stuff of dreams to the stuff of dread.
As we grow older, stairs can become much more of an obstacle. There are many reasons why, from medical conditions which restrict mobility or cause dizziness and shortness of breath, to simply becoming more frail with age. Whatever the reason, the day may come when you no longer feel confident or safe on the stairs in your forever home.
What then? You could reorganise to live on just one floor, but why give up half the home you love? You might have to consider moving again, perhaps to a bungalow or ground floor flat, but what about the expense, upheaval and stress? You could downsize and move to a retirement community or sheltered housing, but are you ready to relinquish your independence?
Thankfully there’s another option, another way to remain living safely and independently in your forever home. Investing in an Acorn Stairlift means you’ll never need to worry about the stairs in your home again. With an Acorn installed you can ride in safety and comfort between the floors in your forever home as often as you like.
A slip or fall on the stairs could have unthinkable consequences, but a stairlift removes that danger. It futureproofs your home so you can continue living there safely and enjoying all of it. Loved ones who worry for your safety will also share in the peace of mind a stairlift brings.
