What is a Home Elevator
Mar 10, 2018

Home elevators are automatic lifts that allow people and things to be moved mechanically from one level of a house to another. For example, if a house is large enough and enough money is made within the family, a family may choose to add a residential home elevator for luxury purposes. At the same time, any family with a disabled child, adult, or elderly resident may opt for a home elevator or lift to enable the family member to move to a higher or lower story. Whatever the reason, a home elevator is designed to ease mobility of the family around the house and allow heavy loads to be more easily carried.Handicare has solutions for everyone with one of the most comfortable and safest chair lifts for stairs with the added benefit of visual appeal.
