What is the best way to move a senior up a flight of stairs?
Your elderly member may be ageing in place in their homes, or they may be moving in with you or a sibling. Both of those are wonderful options for many seniors. But what if the house in question is multi-level? Of course, if a stair-lift product is installed, that will be the safest and best possible resolution overall.
It averagely costs from $3,000 to $5,000 but can rise to $10,000 if there’s a curved staircase. The probability of adding such a facility is significantly cost-prohibitive for many homeowners. Medicare does not cover stair-lifts, yet they may pay for a part of it. Medicaid is different in each province, so I cannot answer if the Medicaid program in your state would pay for a stair-lift product.
