Stair Lifts

  • Can I Install A Stair Lift Myself?

    Self Install Stairlift

    Lately there has been a large influx of websites offering stair lifts that you buy over the internet, and then install yourself. The thought is that you save money on installation, plus the company does not have to pay employees to come out to your home to take measurements and give presentations. This may sound good in theory, but there are a lot of problems with this scenario.

  • Does A Stair Lift Affect The Value Of My Home?

    Stairlift affect home value

    One important factor to consider when deciding whether or not to install a stair lift is, what impact it may have on the future value of your home. Most stair lifts are bolted directly to the floor rather than to the wall, so that they can support the weight of the equipment as well as the weight of the person being carried up and down the stairs. While this is not a permanent fixture, removing a stair lift will certainly leave sizeable holes in the floor as well as potential damage to any carpeting you may have on the stairs. There may also be additional damage to the walls through normal use.

  • Does Medicare cover Stair Lifts?

    Does Medicare cover Stair Lifts?

    Like many Seniors, you're probably wondering... Does Medicare cover Stair Lifts? Unfortunately, the answer is that Medicare does not cover stair lifts. Stair lifts currently are not considered a medical necessity.

    However, just because Medicare does not cover the cost of stair lifts does not mean that financial help is not available elsewhere.
