5 Benefits of Staying in Your Home as a Senior: How Acorn Stairlifts Keeps You in the Home You Love

12:00am & Tips and Advice

It should come as no surprise that as people age, the majority of seniors would prefer to stay in the comfort of their own homes rather than move into a clinical senior care facility. Here at Acorn Stairlifts, we believe that people of all ages and abilities should be able to live their lives to the fullest, continuing to do what they love with the people they love in the homes they love.

This is why Acorn aims to provide you with options that make aging in place not only a possible solution but a safe one with the help of our high-quality stair lifts in your homes. Read on to learn the benefits you can experience when you choose to age in the comfort of your home and how Acorn’s home stairlifts can help you make that dream a reality.

    1. Enjoying More Independence

Studies have shown that more seniors actually fear losing their independence than death itself. With elderly care costs becoming more expensive, many seniors are afraid of being a burden to friends or family members. These are major reasons why expensive senior living communities with rigid schedules and limited freedom can often sound unappealing to the elderly. This is why Acorn Stairlifts strives to help people regain and maintain their independence every day by allowing them to stay in the comfort of their own homes with our variety of customized stairlifts.

 Acorn’s variety of stairlift models for indoor, outdoor, curved, and straight staircases allow you and your loved ones to remain mobile and independent, having full access to all parts of your home from the top floor to the backyard. No longer will you have to depend on someone else to assist you with going up or down the stairs. An Acorn stairlift gives you the freedom and independence to live life on your own schedule, coming and going as you please both inside and outside of your home.

    2. Living Near Loved Ones

Benefits of staying homeMoving into a senior living community can be a stressful and scary experience, especially when you’re moving farther away from neighbors you’ve known for years, friends, or loved ones. Limited visiting hours and space in a nursing home can also make socializing and visitations more difficult. However, when you choose to live out your golden years in your home, you won’t have to face these issues.

Acorn stairlifts allow you to spend precious time with your loved ones by providing you with the independence and mobility to move freely around your home. This freedom allows your loved ones to visit you or you to visit them whenever you please. By staying in your home close to the people you love, you will never have to worry about missing out on life’s precious moments.

    3. Comfort and Familiarity

There’s no place like home, and Acorn knows this. From enjoying a meal at the dinner table with your loved ones to kicking up your feet to unwind with your favorite show, nothing beats the comfort and familiarity of being in your own home. Why move away from all of the memories you’ve made when you can make new ones in the same place?

Acorn’s innovative stairlift installation process requires no structural changes to your home such as drilling or plastering because our stairlifts are attached directly to your staircase and never the wall. This means that the structure or style of your home will never be compromised to fit our stair lift chairs. Our stair lift chairs will always be customized to blend seamlessly into your staircase so that you can continue to enjoy the home you know and love.

    4. Saving Money

Not only is moving consistently ranked as one of the most stressful events in life but moving into a senior care facility is also hard on your wallet. From the cost of transporting your stuff to a new place to the actual cost of living, moving to a senior care facility can easily rack up a large bill. Staying in the home you know and love saves you from the stress of moving and saves you money in the long run.

Acorn Stairlifts provides you with a long-term solution for staying in the home you love with stairlifts for the elderly, disabled, and anyone that struggles with mobility issues. Our high-quality chairlifts are well worth the investment, helping you reach new heights for many years to come as you age in place.

    5. Protecting Health and Safety

As we age, our bodies get more vulnerable to sickness due to weakened immune systems. In retirement homes, where a large number of older people are together in an enclosed space, sicknesses can spread faster and more easily from person to person. However, living at home lessens the chance of coming into contact with someone that is sick. This protects your overall wellbeing, keeping you safe and healthy.

Acorn Stairlifts keeps you healthy in your home by providing you with a dependable home stairlift product that transports you safely up and down the stairs. Equipped with the latest safety features, Acorn’s stairlifts for outdoors and indoors are designed with your well-being in front of mind.
