What is a Stair Lift and How Can One Make Your Home Safer?

For homeowners who have mobility restrictions due to advanced age or illness, navigating the stairs can be dangerous. In fact, the stairs are one of the most common areas for falls to occur, and falls may have devastating consequences. However, if you live in a multi-level home in Ann Arbor or a surrounding area, a chair stair lift allows you to stay safe and secure in your home.

A stair lift is designed to provide safe transportation between different levels of a house. These systems vary widely in design and quality; however, the basic idea is usually the same. A rail runs up the length of the stairway. Attached to the rail is a carriage with a chair. Operating a stair lift is simple. The homeowner simply sits and actives the system to glide slowly up or down the stairs.

When to Have a Stair Lift Installed

When it comes to safety, it is always better to be proactive rather than reactive. Did you know that according to AARP that falls account for 65.5% of all home injury deaths for adults age 65-84? If you or a loved one is having difficulty walking up and down stairs, having a chair stair lift installed can prevent a serious accident. What’s more, a stair lift can make household tasks easier. For example, you can use it to transport laundry or other heavy loads between different levels of the home.

"This was our second experience with Atlas. The shower in our last home was truly a primary selling feature. We returned to Atlas because of the quality of the job and the professionalism of the install. We were happy to see the same installers we had at our other house three years ago arrive here today. Chad and Bill did an excellent job. We received the same professionalism and quality we expected. They arrived with all the materials they would need, no hidden surprises, quality materials. They truly live up to everything they promise!"

"Recently, Atlas Home Improvement finished the second phase of my bathroom remodel. Matt and Chad were here every morning on time, stated in their morning phone call. They were friendly, efficient, knew their job and the job site was always in order and clean. They even went out of their way to make sure I was aware of all aspects of the job. They were GREAT!!! This is a great company!!! Very clean and considerate while putting in my new shower. Time the sales consultant was wonderful and really listened to what I want and was never pushy or tried to sell me something I didn't want. David did a wonderful job installing my shower. Great product they sell. I recommend this company highly!"

– Donna P.

"Dave put in a stair lift for me and I was very, very pleased with the whole experience. He assessed the situation with an eye on my safety and recommended changing the side of the staircase the lift was to be installed on. He did the installation quietly and quickly and without creating any mess. And he made sure I understood how the equipment worked and watched me test ride it. I could not have been more satisfied with the whole process. I would highly recommend Atlas to any senior looking to modify their home so that they can age in place."

– Dorrie R.

"We were experiencing temperature problems with our brand new walk-in tub, in that the temperature would not get very hot. After a call to Atlas we were scheduled by the office staff for an appointment within 2 days, which we very much appreciated. Dave arrived on time and immediately diagnosed the problem - and he quickly fixed it. Dave was very professional, pleasant, friendly, and knowledgeable. Our problem has now been fixed! Thank you Atlas for having such a great installation, office, and repair staff."

– Norv S.

"We had our shower completely re-done by Dave. It was a custom job that involved replacing a sub floor and some plumbing issues. They were friendly, hard workers, our shower turned out perfect! I strongly recommend Atlas Home Improvement they stand by their work!"

– Sherry G.

"Our dealings with Atlas Home Improvement have been nothing but a delight. We had booked them through Home Depot Home Services which had a salesman come out and was easy to deal with and took his time to explain all of the steps to the process. Atlas delivered the exact way they had promised we were in the loop knowing when our materials were ordered when they came in and to finally setting up the appointment. The workmanship was 5 star excellent and we could not have been happier with our new shower enclosure it really made a difference!"

– Sharron R.
