Can you provide some information about stair lifts for my mom?


My mom wants to stay at home, but the bedroom is upstairs and she is unable to climb stairs now. Can you provide some guidance on stair lifts?

Our answer

Stair lifts help maintain a person’s mobility around the home when stairs become difficult to manage.

HME specializes in straight, curved or custom stair lifts. Depending on your location, you can visit a showroom to learn more about and test out different brands of stair lifts. Otherwise, you can call HME toll-free at 1-844-821-0075.  As each home and staircase is different, an HME technician may offer to visit your mom’s home in order to do a home safety inspection to see which lift is the best choice.

Island Mediquip also offers a wide selection of stair lifts. They have store locations in Victoria, Duncan, Nanaimo, Campbell River, and Courtenay. You can contact Island Mediqip toll-free at 1-800-231-7188.The Elan Straight Stairlift, by Bruno

If you would prefer to rent rather than purchase, several retailers including, Medichair, Motion Specialties and National Seating and Mobility, rent a range of products, including stair lifts. Prices vary depending on the specific staircase and on the service provided.
