Frequently Asked Questions

1) Can you apply for one of these lifts if you are on disability?

Someone qualifies for Social Security disability benefits when they have worked in work that was covered by Social Security and have a health condition which meets their definition of impairment. In the event you are on impairment or injured, benefits may be insured. Since SSI is a needs-based plan and an SSI recipient must have limited income and resources, qualifications for the Plan for Achieving Self-Support (PASS) allows a person with a disability to attain an occupational goal. The money that is set aside under a PASS may be used for anything that results in an occupational goal and can be utilized to cover house adjustments through an SSI savings plan. It's possible for you to find out more about PASS through your California Social Security Administration office or call toll free 800 772 1213.

2) How are you supposed to run power to a stair lift?

Electric power (AC) stairlifts need a grounded normal 110v/20 amp outlet found at or near the bottom or top of the stairs. Plug in the DC powered stairlift when it's not being used to recharge the battery. There are also DC powered units that empower the batteries to be constantly charged by the AC electricity while the stairlift uses the DC power from the batteries. The charger unit will convert the voltage to DC. If there is a power outage, the battery controlled stairlift will continue to run until it runs out of electricity. In case the transformer burns out, the DC stairlift WOn't run and you also must have the charger.

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

Medicare doesn't cover stairlift equipment and installation prices, for the reason that they're dwelling modifications, not durable medical equipment. Durable medical equipment contains elevators that are used to help a patient in out of a seat or bed. In California, individuals with limited financial resources might be eligible for the California Medicaid COPES Waiver, recently replaced by the Community First Choice Alternative. It enables individuals who need nursing home level attention to receive that care at home and supports independent living, including coverage for home alterations. Family members may be compensated for providing caregiving help. It is better to review insurance policies that are different. Some private health or long-term care insurance may help pay for house modifications that are limited. Check with your Chico insurance carrier to review coverage choices. The National Association of Home Builders suggests that some auto insurance, worker's compensation, long-term care policies, state disastrous accident insurance plans, and medical trust funds can cover the expenses of a home adjustment.

4) How much does a good stair lift cost?

The cost averages around $3,500 to over $10,000 for a good stairlift. Rental and support systems are accessible. $6,000 and for a custom curved rail stairway costs are around $10,000. for a straight flight of stairs seem to spend between $2,500 While some don't include installment in the cost, some products are sold as complete packages including a guarantee and also installment. The shape of the stairwell, the span of labor, the seat style, the path, and also the attributes you need determine the cost.

5) How are they powered?

Here's another remote to add to your collection if you've ever fought for the remote. When you're not using the stairlift, you can conserve energy by turning it away with the remote also. Stairlifts come in both battery powered (D/C) and electric (A/C) versions. One consideration is whether you reside in a place that experiences a lot of power outages, since you don't need to be stranded mid-elevator during a storm. (However, ask the maker about the backup power system which should be contained in your version.) Additionally, consider the price of replacing the battery as well as the life of the battery. While some favor electric versions for reasons ranging from battery life to some apparatus problems particular to battery versions, others prefer battery-powered stairlifts, because they can result in lower electric bills, although the cost of the electricity to use the stairlift has been considered insignificant by most manufacturers. Since the battery model has a wall plug to keep the battery charged, you don't need to plug in a battery charger after every use. Another thing to think about is the way inclined the user is, as housing and the seat on some versions have to be removed and wires have to be disconnected and reconnected to insert the brand new battery. Request instructions and see if it is something you'll want to replace yourself. We'd be pleased to assist you. In case you choose an electric model, make certain there's a spark plug within a couple of feet of the lift. No special outlets are necessary.

6) Can the track be shortened?

Yes. The tracks can be fixed and the span could be reduced. Yet, using the correct personal protective gear is extraordinarily recommended. Some producers of stairlifts supply do it yourself cutting directions. Hereis the catch. The track determines how nicely the stairlift will run. Making certain that you get the span of the stairs to correspond together with the track length is extremely critical. Without appropriate measurements, you might realize the installation leads to more problems rather than relying on professional installers with experience. Should you cut the paths incorrect, you might have difficulty returning them depending on the yield policy. Most makers will merely accept returns if the course has not been cut, because the cut of the track is custom designed. We highly advise that you do not install your own stairlift or cut the path yourself. It's not very safe. Some sellers will not sell you the stairlift if you intend on installing it yourself. An incorrect shortening of the path or the wrong length of trail can prove to be very dangerous, especially when the course is not too long. At the top of the stairs or in case the individual who wants the stairlift steps off of the chair short of the ground floor, they can injure themselves. It is crucial that the tracks along with the chair work exactly. Licensed installers stress and will save you from lots of head aches and potential prevent harms that are horrible.

Most importantly, they comprise routine care and help you each step of the way. Professional installation is considerably more economical in the long-run with regards to service guarantee and long-term care as they may be trained to follow security measures and experienced at installation. The installer is getting paid to correctly install your unit so you do not face serious hazards that do result when an inexperienced individual opens the guide for the first time and installs a stairlift. A Chico professional also understands the way to ensure that the stairlift follows fire exit requirements, the best way to make sure that ensure that all the appropriate functioning features are empowered, and the charger connections are operating properly to prevent serious injuries. The cost you pay to truly have a trained and trusted tech ensures the longevity of your purchase and your security. Additionally, setup includes lifting a fair quantity of weight. Many setups can be completed in a few hours by a professional.

9) Can these lifts be used on wood flooring?

Lifts can be installed on all kinds of flooring (carpet, concrete, tile, marble, linoleum, or bare wooden stairway). Holes will be evident without carpeting when the stairlift is removed. However, the holes are small and could be filled. Stairlifts may also be installed on wooden outdoor steps. The rail will likely be attached to your wooden steps. In fact, most professionally installed stairlifts in Chico price between $500 and $1,000 for the work given a variety of variables based on the problem of the job. Tile, concrete, or metal stairways are more challenging than wooden stairs. Having wooden stairs as a construction material of the staircase makes the job for an installer less labor intensive and much more affordable for you.

10) Can these be used on carpeted floors?

Lifts can be set up on all types of flooring (carpeting, concrete, tile, marble, linoleum, or bare wooden stairs). Installers can twist right through the carpeting. All you will see is the tops of the screws through the supporting brackets underneath the railing. Because the aluminum chips are very hard to remove from the carpeting, the courses do not cut on inside the house. One thing that specialists mention is that if your carpeting will probably need replacing in the next 5 years, you might want to replace it before you've got a stairlift. Otherwise, you will have to factor in the price of uninstalling and reinstalling the stairlift.

AARP does provide accessibility to health care tools and coverage like Medicare Supplement Insurance and other health plans to members as a resource, but member advantages are given by third parties. Check with the plans which are recorded under the membership services of AARP.

12) How sturdy are these lifts to install?

The sturdiness of track and the chair construction of a stairlift can change so it's not bad to do some assignments. In order to determine how sturdy a stairlift is, ensure it is strong enough for the most significant user by comparing maximum weight capacities. More than a few companies assert the toughest in the business is the model that offers the heaviest weight capacity at 400 lbs.. Heavier duty versions demand sturdier tracks and bigger batteries. Heavy duty versions cost more so be sure you get the model that fits the person who will use the stairlift. Always check whether the manufacturer has an established reputation for strong, safe and well-made products.
