Homes where residential elevators are particularly useful are those where senior citizens reside. If you are anticipating that an elderly or disabled relative may soon live with you or you are concerned about the in-home dangers of living independently as a senior, then installing an elevator can help alleviate your worries.
Increase Home Value
One universal benefit of having an elevator in the home is an increased home value. Much like any other upgrade to the home, an elevator can distinguish your house from others on the market and increase its worth.
Decrease Safety Concerns
Slip-and-fall accidents are the biggest cause for injury of senior citizens, and stairs can greatly increase the risk for a fall. Additionally, around-the-house chores like laundry are made easier with an elevator, because there is no need to struggle with a large laundry basket going up and down the stairs. Putting an elevator in the home before mobility issues are a large concern can make the process much easier.
- Access to the Whole Home: If you were to lose the ability to utilize the stairs, then your access to at least half of your house would be limited until you have an elevator installed.
- Eliminate Potential Danger for Visitors: You may have people temporarily visiting your home who have difficulties with mobility. Having an elevator in the home will allow you to always be prepared for any guest, relieving you of liability that may be caused by an injury.
