Here are some options...

Stairlifts

A stairlift is a well-known way of staying independent in your home when you start to find that getting up the stairs is not as easy as it used to be. Attached to a rail that is fixed to your stairs, a stairlift can be installed within a matter of hours. At Spring Chicken we have researched the market to help you decide whether a stairlift is right for you.

Stair Climbers

A stair climber is a less well known solution to getting up and down stairs. It is a portable ‘trolley’ fitted with rotating wheels so that it can be guided up or down stairs. The advantage of a stair climber is that you can take it with you wherever you go in the knowledge you’ll be able to get up just about any stairs.
