People of all ages across the United Kingdom deserve to enjoy a quality of life in which they can be happy and carry out normal everyday actions without pain or restrictions. A residential property should provide the perfect living environment which not only reflects its owners through the choices of interior design layouts, furniture and décor, but also create the warmth and comfort required to enjoy life. This is particularly the case for retirees, elderly and disabled people who may spend more time in their home than outdoors; although their age and mobility should not deter people from leaving their home, they may be too fragile physically to head out on their own without the guidance and assistance of a carer, family member or friend.
Although many people are able to carry out normal cognitive functions, such as walking and washing themselves, on a daily basis, there are others who are not as fortunate as they suffer through mobility issues or a disability. Their body may be too weak or create pain within the joints when attempting regular movements which may hamper their quality of life. It is therefore important to integrate facilities, such as hand railings and specialist bathroom facilities, to allow elderly and disabled people to feel comfortable and not be restricted by their respective mobility problems.
Walking up and down the stairs can be a particular obstacle for people whose body is unable to effectively manage the workload and pressure placed upon the lower body, or is able to use their upper body to balance themselves on a bannister. Having a straight stairlift installed can provide the all important facility required to prevent people from struggling or being unable to get themselves from the ground floor to their bathroom or bedroom, and vice versa.
Straight stair lifts are built upon a track fitted alongside either side of a stairwell which allow people to sit on a comfortable chair that transports them up or down the stairs at a steady, comfortable pace. A stair lift effectively removes the pain and pressure placed upon the body for people who suffer from mobility difficulties to live in peace and comfort.
