As one gets older, traveling up and down the stairs can be increasingly difficult. Elderly individuals may experience tiredness, shortness of breath, or even soreness.
Sadly, millions of people aged 65 and older fall each year. In fact, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, one out of four older persons will fall each year, and falling once will double the chances that that person will fall again.

The American Association of Retired Persons found that nearly 90% of people over 65 years of age want to live in their homes for as long as possible.

Many homeowners and family members struggle with the question “Which Stairlift Should I Buy?” Previously, we pointed out two common misconceptions about stairlifts: that they are a commodity (all the same, so just find the cheapest one), and that quality is determined exclusively by the manufacturing of the stairlift equipment itself.
