Staircase Safety

As you get older, getting up and down stairs can become difficult. If you have asthma or joint problems due to arthritis or osteoporosis, then you might want to consider a stairlift. Stairlifts allow you to get up and down the stairs safely and comfortably.

There are other ways to ensure staircase safety at home:

  • Take your time when walking up and down the stairs
  • Get a relative or friend to help you
  • Avoid carrying objects that may be heavy or obscure your view
  • Install a downstairs toilet to minimise trips up and down the stairs
  • Consider downsizing and moving into a bungalow
