Options for home access with limited landing spaces
If your home has stairs or changes in elevation that are impossible for you or your loved one to navigate any longer, there are some great solutions available. Even if you have limited landing space, there are still options to grant access to those stairs or raised levels. Stairlifts or Vertical Platform Lifts (also known as Wheelchair Elevators) are worth looking into to grant access for any type of mobility issue.
Stairlifts and Vertical Platform Lifts are both available for interior or exterior use. That means that whether you are in a wheelchair, use a power scooter, a walker, cane or are unable to navigate stairs due to injury, health or growing older, you can still use all parts of your home. One of these amazing solutions may even keep you from moving from the multi-level home you love.
