A residential elevator is an important tool to a wheelchair user, but it can be more than that. We build home elevators that are beautiful focal points for homes. Homeowners love you they are free to completely customize their home elevator. You can choose glass, wood, brass — any material you like. Plus, you can locate it anywhere in your home — you are not limited to the stairway as you are with a wheelchair lift.
However, if you have a more utilitarian-style home elevator in mind, that is an option as well.
Wheelchair Users Feel Safer with Home Elevators
While wheelchair lifts for stairs are completely safe when installed correctly, their open construction makes some wheelchair users anxious. They prefer the safety of a residential elevator, which is essentially a small room with four walls.
Additionally, home elevators have a much higher weight limit than wheelchair lifts, which means others can ride along in the elevator with the wheelchair user. This is one of the reasons a residential elevator adds so much to property values — it can be used for other purposes, such as for moving heavy items up or down stairs.
Residential Elevators Help with Independence
Regardless of your age, you want to be able to do as much for yourself as possible. You don’t want to be dependent on others for help, and a residential elevator makes independence much easier for wheelchair users. You can access different floors of your home at any time without assistance.
Residential elevators are useful not only in promoting self-confidence and autonomy, but also in keeping wheelchair users at home longer. Whether they are elderly or living with an advancing medical condition, wheelchair users — like anyone — want to remain in the familiar surroundings of their own home in Colorado Springs for as long as possible. No one wants to give up their home to move to assisted living.
An affordable home elevator can make the difference.
