Three Rs of stair­lifts

Daily Mail - - Freeview Primetime Planner -

BACK in the old days you could pretty much sum up the school cur­ricu­lum in a sin­gle phrase — the three Rs. It stood for read­ing, writ­ing and ’rith­metic — never mind if two didn’t ac­tu­ally be­gin with R. To­day a dif­fer­ent kind of three Rs re­lat­ing to stair­lifts could en­hance your qual­ity of life.

n RE­TAIN your in­de­pen­dence. A stair­lift will en­able you to go up and down stairs in safety and com­fort when­ever you like. If you’re re­cov­er­ing from an ill­ness or ac­ci­dent and are un­steady on your feet you might need phys­i­cal help get­ting up and down the stairs, or at least some­one to watch over you. The same might be true if you have stiff­ness in your joints, weak­ness in your mus­cles or any con­di­tion which leaves you breath­less or light­headed through ex­er­tion. Hav­ing a fall is never good, but if it hap­pens on the stairs it could be cat­a­strophic, and it could take months to get back to nor­mal, if you ever do.

RE­GAIN the free­dom of your home with­out hav­ing to sleep down­stairs.

RE­MAIN in the home you love. There’s no need to move to a bun­ga­low or down­stairs flat. Stay where you are, free from wor­ries about the stairs.
