Home Lifts for Elderly
The pressures facing social care for the elderly in the UK is rarely out of the media at the moment. A recent report highlighted the crisis in this sector:
“Age UK said tightening eligibility for council-funded social care meant 626,701 people – 895 a day – have had requests for social care refused since March 2017. More than a million older people had developed an unmet care need in that time, such as needing help with washing or dressing, it added.”
It’s no coincidence that, over the past 2 years, the Tower Lifts design and installation team have seen increased demand for home lifts to support elderly clients living in their own homes.
Creating Domestic Lifts Design for Elderly Clients
Many of the calls we get are from domestic clients are still perfectly able to manage in their home. They are, however, anxious about the provision of social care funding in the future and their ability to stay in their own home. The emphasis, therefore, is on ‘future-proofing’ a family home. This ensures that, as the years pass, our clients are still able to access all the floors of their house.
‘Future-proofing’ tends to be a big step for clients. Because of this, the process is often initiated by family members who want to ensure their well-being. The Tower Lifts design team will visit the house and create an initial design for clients to consider. This will include customisable options on style, colour, texture and additional features.
A Range of Domestic Lifts to ‘Future-Proof’ Your Home
Any Tower Lifts design for the domestic setting would be likely to include some, or all, of the following options:
- Bespoke Platform Lifts: These are an ideal solution for the home as they enhance accessibility, whilst integrating with the style and architecture of your home. The versatile platform lift technology allows them to be installed in virtually any part of the house. All home lifts and are fully customisable.
- Integrated Platform Lifts: These are designed to fit invisibly into their surroundings, until required. Integrated platform lifts are ideal for outdoor use, when attempting to negotiate a short flight of steps, for example. Or they can be used indoors to navigate split level flooring, or two or three steps leading from one room to another.
- Dumbwaiter Lifts: It may seem odd to encounter a goods lift in this context, but the dumbwaiter lift is becoming increasingly popular in future-proofing projects. This small, waist-high, service lift is an ideal way to transport shopping bags, laundry, or small items from one floor to another. Our bespoke dumbwaiters can also work horizontally.
