Frequently Asked Questions

1) What types of financing are available if insurance doesn't cover home modifications?

Depending on your medical condition, there are a few plans that help make the house adjustment less expensive. 1. The Fall Prevention Center of Excellence lists government grants that are available for home modifications. 2. Contact the National Council on Independent Living Center (703) 525-3406 on ways to get capital and referral services locally. 3. 4. It may reassure you to know that if your insurance does not cover the cost, several of the stairlift manufacturers have partnered with banks to provide financing alternatives, including monthly payment alternatives and loans. 5. There are other options to consider. The IRS may decide that your house adjustment qualifies for tax deductions. Call the Internal Revenue Service to see if you're able to deduct the price of installing your stairlift. IRS Publication 502 is a good resource that can help you gauge whether modifying your stairs qualifies you to deduct it as a medical expense. You may also call them at (800) 829-1040. 6. Some Area Agency of Aging use funds from the Older Americans Act Title III to modify homes should you qualify. Many cities and towns use Community Development Block Grants (CDBG) for home alterations, so check with your Athens, Georgia office. You can call them toll free at 877-866-2476 or visit

2) Does the VA cover the cost and installation of lifts?

According to AARP, The Department of Veterans Affairs offers a few grants to qualified veterans with disabilities for security improvements in the residence. Those include: the Home Improvements and Structural Alternations (HISA) Grant; The Specially Adapted Housing (SAH) grant; and also the Special House Version (SHA) grant. Upon qualification, a veteran can receive both a HISA grant and either a SAH or SHA grant. Contact the form 10-0103 to apply for the HISA grant. Contact the VA and ask for VA form 26-4555 to submit an application for a SAH or SHA grant. For information on all benefits call 1-800-827-1000.

3) Are there any structural modifications needed before installing a lift?

No. There are not any adjustments which are crucial since stairlifts do not attach to the wall. The stairlift is installed into existing stair treads. The single thing that we do recommend is that if you are intending to modify the flooring or carpet on your stairs in the next five years, you might want to intend to do it before you install your stairlift to prevent future removal and re installation prices.

4) Are there any good options for used or recycled lifts in my area?

Yes. Recycled and reconditioned stairlifts are an option and are available. Custom designed curved stairlifts are harder to resell, as the angles round the curves truly have to be an extremely close match. A recycled stairlift offers lots of advantages and is inherently good merely because it is used. Many Georgia stairlift companies buy back stairlifts and resell them used. A used stairlift may have been removed and resold, as the man who depended on the raise improved in their condition, they went, or the demand for it was temporary. They cost considerably less than new versions. Make sure you ask some questions, when purchasing a used lift. Inquire about their weight and the previous owner /height demands. Ask about the age of the model that is used. We recommend that you really do not purchase one that is 10 years old, because that version is close to retirement. You can shorten the span of tracks if necessary, as stated before.

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

Someone qualifies for Social Security disability benefits when they've worked in work that was covered by Social Security and have a health condition that meets their definition of disability. If 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, eligibility for the Plan for Achieving Self-Support (PASS) allows a person with a disability to attain an occupational objective. The money that is set aside under a PASS can be used for anything that contributes to an occupational goal and may be utilized to cover house adjustments via an SSI savings plan. You'll figure out more about PASS through your Georgia Social Security Administration office or call toll free 800-772-1213.

6) About how long does it take to fully install one of these lifts in my Athens home?

A fitting can take between 1-2 hours for straight stairs. A Georgia professional will install the railing first, followed by the seat as well as the motor. Appropriate setup includes once it's been analyzed after the fitting walking you through the features of your new stairlift. A fitting for a curved stairlift can take as much as a half day.

7) How much would a cheap one cost?

You can likely find a stairlift that is cheap for about $1,000, but we additionally advocate you be careful of scams. Many people have purchased an extremely inexpensive unit and soon learned that there were flaws in the unit once they got them home, or they did not operate correctly. Quality is important since you may end up spending a lot more to maintain an economical purchase. To be able to find an affordable option, consider leasing one or buying models that are used. Scroll by means of this page to see our advice on seeking affordable units and finance options. Remember also that some businesses buy back your stairlift if it turns out you no longer desire it and you don't want to keep throwing money down the drain on a unit that isn't made with quality in mind.

8) How much do they weigh?

The units are heavy, which is among the reasons we do not recommend attempting to install them yourself. The lightest units available on the market weigh 165-180 pounds installed (chair and track). Some units weight over 250 pounds installed. Seat assemblies and courses come in various sizes and shapes and are created of different types of substances determined by its finest attributes and the model.

9) How do stair lifts work?

Essentially, it's like riding in your ski lift, minus the bitter cold. A safety belt keeps you firmly in place as well as a foot rest prevents you from hitting on the steps while using the lift. Some stairlifts call/send controls on the wall near the paths for a user or a remote control can be used by you to send the chair in which you would like it to go. Occasionally the control panel can be found on the seat arm. Become acquainted with the particular attributes of your unit. The lift consists of a the control system, a carriage, a motor, as well as your comfortable seat in order that you could once again regain your mobility. Some versions rely on a belt like a conveyor belt and a rack and pinion system is used by other versions.

10) Is there any permanent damage when installing one of these lifts?

No. One of the rationales that the stairlifts are attached to the stairway is to shield your Athens dwelling from damage related to installation. The few screws attached to the stairlifts can be handled by the treads of the stairs. The holes are easy to cover. The carpet may also have holes in it. The overall worth of your property will not depreciate. Realtors used to advocate that a stairlift be removed prior to placing your house out there, nevertheless given increased life expectancy, if you plan on selling your home, this is no longer the case.

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

For the reason that they are house alterations, not durable medical equipment, Medicare does not cover stairlift equipment and installation costs. Durable medical equipment contains elevators that are used to help a patient in out of a chair or bed. In Georgia, individuals with limited financial resources might be eligible for the Georgia Medicaid COPES Waiver, recently replaced by the Community First Choice Alternative. It empowers people who supports independent living and need nursing home level attention to receive that attention at home, including coverage for home alterations. Family members can be compensated for supplying caregiving assistance. Based on the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP), some private health insurance providers may offer financial assistance for some home modifications in the event the lift is considered a medical necessity. It's better to review insurance policies that are different. Some private health or long-term care insurance can help pay for home alterations that are limited. Check with your Athens insurance insurance company to review policy alternatives.

12) How are they powered?

You can save energy by turning it off with the remote also, when you're not using the stairlift. Stairlifts come in both battery powered (D/C) and electrical (A/C) versions. One consideration is whether you live in a place that experiences lots of power outages, because you do not need to be stranded mid-elevator during a thunderstorm. (Nevertheless, ask the maker about the backup power system which should be contained in your model.) Additionally, consider the cost of replacing the battery and also the life of the battery. Usually, determined by the brand, it costs $30-$160 to replace the battery or batteries . While some favor electric versions for reasons which range from battery life to some device difficulties particular to battery models, others favor battery powered stairlifts, since they could lead to lower electric bills, although the cost of the electricity to control the stairlift has been considered insignificant by most makers. Because the battery model still has a wall plug to keep the battery charged you do not have to plug in a battery charger after every use. Another thing to think about is how mechanically inclined the user is, cables have to be disconnected and reconnected to fit the brand new battery and as casing and the seat on some models must be removed. Sometimes, this becomes a service call to an installer to create life simpler. Request instructions and see if it's something that you'll wish to replace yourself. We'd be happy to help you out. Make certain there is a plug within a couple of feet of the lift, if you choose an electric model. No particular outlets are required.
