The very mention of stairlifts is enough to make some folk feel uncomfortable, but it really shouldn’t. For too long now, stairlifts in Dumfries homes have been seen as a sign of giving in to mobility problems and accepting that life will never be the same again.
Thankfully however we now live in an age of realistic thinking and have come to accept the above as nonsense! In fact, the truth about the stairlifts Dumfries residents are using each and every day is precisely to the contrary.

Think about it – every day there are hundreds of people across the region that find themselves struggling to do the kind of things they used to do with ease. Climbing the stairs is of course a prime example, as in a short space of time, the upper floors of a building can become almost inaccessible without a great deal of time or effort or even pain.
So, the choice is either to put up with these problems and face eventual inaccessibility, or look into the stairlifts Dumfries Scotland specialists are fitting every day and hold onto complete and total independence.
How on Earth can this second option be considered giving in?
It’s all a case of pure common sense – the simplest stairlifts have the potential to help a person hold onto the life they love and the home they hold dear. There is an outdated stigma that still stands in the way of so many people who could otherwise be leading rich and full lives, though for one reason or another have yet to accept the possibilities
So really, it’s time for Dumfries and the UK to wake up to the reality of how much better so many lives might be with a stairlift!

ARE YOU HAVING MOBILITY PROBLEMS? IF SO, READ ON
Elizabeth and William are an elderly couple, William is 75 and his wife, Elizabeth, is 72. They have lived in their lovely converted cottage, which was once the village shop, for the last 50 years in fact all their married life. Their children were born there, attended the village school and their daughter was married in the local church. They do not want to move but sadly Elizabeth has mobility problems and is finding the stairs increasingly more difficult to cope with on a day-to-day basis. They are reluctantly considering the idea of perhaps having to move to a single storey property.
A stairlift would be the answer and, although their staircase is a curved one, this would present no problem as stairlifts can be fitted to curved staircases as well as straight ones. A curved stairlift would inevitably be more expensive to install than a straight one but Elizabeth and William would not then be faced with the possibility of having to move from their cottage leaving 50 year’s worth of memories behind them.
If you too are having mobility problems with back, knees or hips and find yourself in the same situation, when choosing your stairlift, it is important that you check the height of the seat on the stairlift seat and to make sure that your knees or feet don’t get caught against the wall or banisters when the stairlift is moving.
It is not recommended that you take a walking stick or walking frame on the stairlift with you as this might easily catch on the steps whilst the lift is moving. Keep one walking aid at the bottom of the stairs and one at the top.
Whether your staircase is a straight one or a curved one, there will be a stairlift to fit it.
