Margret of M. - GermanyMargret of M. tells:
Two years ago, I suddenly found it hard to climb the steep staircase. Shortly thereafter, I was diagnosed with a disease. I knew it wasn’t going to get any easier, so it was time to act. Through an acquaintance, I learned about Handicare stairlifts and the positive impact it has had on their life. So, with short notice, I started to tackle “operation stairlift” in my own home, even though I was not sure if the narrow staircase in our 120-year-old house would even allow for the installation of a stairlift.
After the first contact with a certified Handicare dealer, everything went very quickly! They sent someone to my home to survey my staircase and advise me of all my options. And the narrow stairs? It wasn’t a problem thanks to Handicare’s array of options for narrow staircases.
After only a few days, I was the owner of a brand new stairlift! It only took a few hours for installation, too! From that day on, it has no longer been a problem for me to climb the steep staircase. I no longer have to worry about moving or being restricted to the first floor of my home, which makes me happy because I have spent my entire life in this house. All of my memories reside in this house, so a move truly was the last resort.
Today, I am fortunately better and stronger and can manage the stairs on my own. However, I love my stairlift so much that I am not ready to give it up! In fact, I often use it as an everyday little helper, such as transporting my laundry basket or groceries. And of course, the stairlift always gives me a sense of security.
I would recommend a stairlift to anyone who has problems with the stairs. A stairlift has not only provided me physical relief, but also mental relief by providing me peace of mind.
