Stair Lifts & Home Modifications In VA, MD, & DC
Over 2,000 satisfied clients as well as scores of case managers, geriatric care managers, and other trusted senior advisors making referrals agree: Live In Place is the number-one most preferred provider of custom home modification and mobility solutions in Northern Virginia and the Washington D.C./Maryland metro area.
Before any installation, Live In Place conducts an evaluation by Certified Aging-In-Place Specialists and occupational and physical therapists trained in mobility and accessibility options. Our “Best in Class” results ensure your peace of mind that the home modifications are right for your loved one, improving safety while retaining their independence.
Before modifying your home, there are critical considerations – not widely understood – prior to any purchase of equipment. Each situation is unique.
For example, installing a stair lift to suit your loved one the right way involves much more than simple mechanics – a handyman or installer assembling parts and turning screws. A stroke survivor will have different safety and comfort requirements for a stair lift than, say, someone with only overall body weakness from simple aging.
Key stair lift considerations, which are unique to each client and depend on their specific condition or disease progression, include:
- Which side of the body the person is weak or strong
- What extremities have limited range of motion
- Emotional and psychological considerations, such as fear of falling or aversion to motion
- Other individual and condition-specific concerns
Upon evaluation, Live In Place then makes recommendations on what type and model of stair lift would be best, the choice of seat, how high or low to position the seat and the track at installation, which side of the stairway the lift should be on, and other unique considerations best assessed by a medical and therapeutic professional.
Live In Place uses this same therapeutic approach for other home modifications, including the installation of home entrance and exit ramps, other types of lifts, grab bars, and bathroom safety solutions.
