Having always considered yourself to be fit and healthy you realise that time is catching up with you. You’ve been retired for twenty years, so you have naturally slowed down with you once lengthy daily ramble now limited to the local shop and back, and even that is painful.
Despite putting a brave face on things, the pain once home is becoming more than a twinge. You decide that it’s time to spend a few quid and speak to a local stairlift supplier in Stow-On-Wold.
You have seen similar stuff advertised on TV, but you always believe in shopping locally. You want to deal with a company with excellent customer service, so one offering free consultations, independent advice, survey, installation, and full after sales support is just the ticket.
You are a big old boy, but after finding out that the stair lifts you are looking at can carry up to 25 stone in weight your worst fears subside! Having a remote wireless control sounds very snazzy. It might even impress the great grandkids. A swivel seat will also rotate so it’s completely safe to get in and out of. And you are told that parts of the model are also foldable so that space is not going to be an issue.
Yes, having a stairlift fitted by a local supplier is a great idea, and once the pains in your knees subside, you may find you can walk a little more each day. There’s life in the old dog yet!
