Frequently Asked Questions

1) How are these lifts fitted?

Making your purchase can entail an excellent deal of time, work and decision making once you consider which features matter most to you and all the multiple types of stairlifts that are accessible to you personally that will best fit your needs. When you've decided, fitting the lift entails ensuring that the best attention is given to the system fitting properly in order that you do not have to worry about its safety or reliability. Your best option is to have it fit by qualified Hilo professionals. These qualified professionals quantify pitch angle and the step heights to achieve accuracy. The professional discover your stairway can be fit by the stairlift --and will go to the site--indoor or outside. The track will be secured by them to the stairs with supports fixed to the staircase. Frequently people wonder if it's connected to the wall, but the stairlift is right fitted via the floor covering of the stairway. The rail fastener points are accessible over the top of any carpet you may have on the steps.

2) Does health insurance cover equipment cost and installation of a lift?

Because they're home adjustments, not durable medical equipment, Medicare doesn't cover installation prices and stairlift equipment. Durable medical equipment comprises lifts which are used to help a patient in out of a seat or bed. Medicaid in your state may cover stairlifts through Home and Community Based Services (HCBS) Waivers. In Hawaii, individuals with limited financial resources may be eligible for the Hawaii Medicaid COPES Waiver, recently replaced by the Community First Choice Alternative. It empowers people who supports independent living and require nursing home level attention to receive that attention at home, including coverage for home modifications. Family can be compensated for supplying caregiving support. According to the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP), some private health insurance providers may offer financial assistance for some home modifications if the lift is recognized as a medical necessity. It's better to review insurance policies that are different. Some private health or long-term care insurance can help pay for small home alterations. Check with your Hilo insurance carrier to examine coverage alternatives. The National Association of Home Builders suggests that some auto insurance, worker's compensation, long-term care coverages, state disastrous accident insurance plans, and medical trust funds can cover the expenses of a home adjustment.

3) Can these be used on carpeted floors?

Elevators can be set up on all kinds of flooring (carpet, concrete, tile, marble, linoleum, or bare wooden stairs). Installers can twist right through the carpeting. The tracks do not cut inside the house, because the aluminum chips are very difficult to remove from the carpeting. One thing that specialists mention is that if your carpeting is likely to need replacing in the next 5 years, before you've got a stairlift installed, you may want to replace it. Otherwise, you will need to factor in the cost of uninstalling and re installing the stairlift.

4) How much do they weigh?

The units are hefty, which is one of the reasons we don't recommend attempting to install them yourself. The lightest units available on the market weigh 165-180 pounds installed (chair and course). Some units weight over 250 pounds installed. Chair collections and tracks come in different sizes and shapes and are created of various kinds of substances depending on its best characteristics and the model.

5) Can a stair lift go around corners?

Yes. Although straight stairlifts are often not as expensive, curved stairlifts can be custom-built to fit any staircase. Modern railing layouts can help the stairlift traveling around corners tightly, comfortably, and smoothly to suit your lifestyle, leaving a lot of room for people to walk up and down the stairs.

6) Are there any good options for used or recycled lifts in my area?

Yes. Stairlifts that are recycled and reconditioned are available and are an alternative. Custom designed curved stairlifts are harder to resell, because the angles around the curves really need to be an extremely close match. A recycled stairlift is fundamentally good only because it's used and offers a lot of edges. Many Hawaii stairlift companies resell them used and buy stairlifts back. A stairlift that was used resold and may have been removed, because the person who depended on the raise improved within their state, they went, or the need for it was temporary. They cost considerably less than new versions. When purchasing a used lift, be sure you ask some questions. Ask about their weight and the previous owner /height demands. Ask about the age of the used model. We advise that you don't purchase one which is 10 years old, because that version is close to retirement. You can shorten the length of tracks if needed as mentioned before. Nevertheless, be sure to adhere to quite a measured strategy for cutting tracks, because a mistake will cost you.

7) How much does a good stair lift cost?

The price averages around $3,500 to over $10,000 for a good stairlift. Rental and help programs are available. $6,000 and for a custom curved rail staircase prices are around $10,000. for a straight flight of stairs look to spend between $2,500 Some products are sold as complete packages including a guarantee along with setup, while others do not comprise installation in the price. The shape of the stairwell, the length of the seat fashion the course, work, as well as the attributes you need decide the cost.

8) How are they powered?

Here's another remote to add to your set in case you have ever fought for the remote. You can save energy by turning it off with the remote also, when you are not using the stairlift. Stairlifts come in both battery-powered (D/C) and electrical (A/C) versions. One factor is whether you live in a place that experiences a great deal of power outages, since you don't want to be stranded mid-elevator during a storm. (However, ask the manufacturer about the backup power system which should be included in your model.) Additionally, consider the cost of replacing the battery and the life of the battery. Usually, determined by the brand, it costs $30-$160 to replace the battery or batteries . While some favor electrical models for reasons which range from battery life to some device issues particular to battery models, others prefer battery powered stairlifts, since they can result in lower electric bills, although the expense of the electricity to control the stairlift has been considered negligible by the majority of producers. Since the battery version has a wall plug to maintain the battery charged, you do not need to plug in a battery charger after every use. Another thing to consider is how inclined the user is, as casing and the seat on some models have to be removed and wires need to be disconnected and reconnected to insert the brand new battery. Occasionally, this becomes a service call to an installer to make life simpler. Request directions and see whether it's something that you will need to replace yourself. We'd be pleased to help you out. Make certain there's a spark plug within a few feet of the elevator, in the event you decide on an electrical model. No specific outlets are essential.

9) Can you build one of these yourselves?

It certainly depends upon your technical know-how. It is a very daunting procedure. Because their stairs are excessively narrow to make use of the ones in the marketplace, many people choose to create a homemade stairlift or they're trying to work on a tight budget. Some designs are available on the Internet, however, without the proper tools, materials and welding knowledge, this approach might take a long time to build and also plenty of frustrations. Also, when you compare layout plans that are shared for a stairlift to purchasing a tried and true tested model, a homemade version and commercial models can't compete as much as look and compactness. It's a rugged approach to go. Also, remember safety is really a issue for anybody who is going to rely on the raise, therefore it is critical for you to do frequent checking and thorough testing of your handiwork.

10) Can the track be shortened?

Yes. The tracks could be adjusted and also the span may be reduced. However, using the correct personal protective gear is highly recommended. Some producers of supply that is stairlifts do-it-yourself cutting directions. Hereis the catch. The track determines how nicely the stairlift will run. Making certain that you get the length of the staircase to correspond together with the course length is extremely critical. Without proper measurements, you may find that the installation results in more difficulties instead of relying on professional installers with expertise. If you cut on the paths wrong, you might have difficulty returning them depending on the return policy. Most makers will only accept returns if the path hasn't yet been cut, because the cut of the track is custom designed. We highly advise that you really do not install your own stairlift or cut yourself to the track. It is not very safe. Some retailers WOn't sell you the stairlift if you plan on installing it yourself. An incorrect shortening of the course or the wrong length of path can not prove to be extremely safe, especially when the course is too short. It's crucial that the tracks along with the chair work just. Licensed installers will save you from a lot of headaches and stress and horrible injuries are prevented by possible.

11) Does it increase or decrease the value of my home?

The entire value of your home will not depreciate. In case you plan on selling your Hilo dwelling, realtors used to advocate that a stairlift be removed prior to placing your house on the Hawaii market, nevertheless given increased life expectancy, this is no longer the case. You may also completely remove the stairlift with no signs of setup when you desire or want it or move. Realtors can list the dwelling is appropriate for living that is accessible independent and that the stairlift is a high utility value for physically disabled people and if a purchaser desires it removed, then that chance is offered by them.

12) Does AARP cover the cost of these lifts?

AARP is not a supplier of insurance, but contracts with insurance companies to make coverage available to AARP members. AARP does not make health plan recommendations for people and doesn't cover the cost of stairlifts or any health needs. AARP does provide coverage like other health plans and Medicare Supplement Insurance and access to healthcare tools to members as a resource, but member benefits are supplied by third parties. Check with the plans which are recorded under AARP's membership services.
