The bottom line is that you can add your residential elevator anywhere you wish at your home — you aren’t bound to building your access point at the stairs. Many of our clients appreciate this flexibility and locate their home elevators accordingly.
Elevators for Homes Promote Safety
While wheelchair lifts properly installed on stairways are safe, many wheelchair users feel safer in an elevator. Because a home elevator is an enclosed room and a stairway wheelchair lift is more open (though they do have safety bars and secure borders), many wheelchair users are more comfortable in an elevator. The buttons are easy to press and it is not necessary to hold them down for the entire ride. Plus, our home elevators provide a smooth ride, and operation is extremely quiet.
Residential elevators also have a much higher weight limit than wheelchair lifts. A caretaker or companion can ride the elevator with the wheelchair user, and your home elevator can even be used for other purposes such as moving items upstairs easily instead of carrying them.
Residential Home Elevators Help with Independence
Regardless of your age or the reason you are in a wheelchair, you goal is to remain as independent as possible and to be able to do as much for yourself as you can. A home elevator allows you to have more control over your life at your Boise home for longer.
Few people want to give up the familiarity of the home they have lived in for years to move to a residence that provides assistance. A home elevator gives you back your confidence and your autonomy, improving your outlook and your self-esteem.
