Stair lifts are a godsend. They give you access to a part of the house that may not be possible if you can’t cope with stairs. You may feel a bit like an elderly person - the adverts on TV don't help; but they are so worth the initial embarrassment when you can get up and downstairs.
You can sometimes apply for a grant to get a stairlift. Contact your GP, physiotherapist or OT about this.
Visit the following sites for information on the type of stairlift to suit your needs, how they can be adapted to your home and comparisons of different stairlifts.
