What Does COVID-19 Mean for Home Mobility?

It’s safe to say that we’ve never had a year like 2020. So many plans have been changed or cancelled altogether, so many businesses have been impacted … everyone has had to adjust to the “new normal” in some way. Home mobility is no different. We’ve had to change the ways in which we conduct business.

The market for mobility solutions has changed as well, and one of the main reasons has been the fact that elder care facilities have been hotbeds of COVID-19 infections in many states. For that reason, even more people than usual have sought new ways to continue living at home, or to allow a loved one to continue to occupy their home, avoiding assisted-living facilities.

And that makes good sense. In these or any other circumstances, mobility products like stair lifts, home elevators, platform lifts, ramps and patient lifts can all make it possible to maintain a quality lifestyle at home.

But what about the actual work? Is it disruptive or dangerous?

We are taking every precaution to be safe during both the home consultation process and the actual installation. We’re wearing face coverings, maintaining proper physical distancing, and in most cases our installations are done in a single day, so disruption is minimized. In short, we’re taking the necessary steps to minimize exposure.

If you’re uncertain about what can be done to help you or a loved one remain at home instead of risking an elder-care facility, give us a call. We’re here to help with a wide variety of solutions.
