As a person reaches a point in life - due to age or early disability -- where walking up and down stairs becomes difficult, the benefits of a power stair lift are more obvious: The lift can move a person up and down stairs. But there are other benefits, as well. A power stair lift:

  1. Reduces the risk of falling. A power stair lift can be installed proactively -- while the person is still able to maneuver on stairs. However, most stair lifts are ordered when people are in the hospital or a rehabilitation facility and cannot return to a home with multiple levels. When it is physically impossible for a person to get up and down the stairs, a stair lift isn't just a preventative measure, but a necessity.
  2. Gives peace of mind to the caregiver or family member.

United Way of the Greater Lehigh Valley Gatekeeper Program is enabling the community to recognize and identify seniors in need. There are an estimated 5,000 unsupported dependent seniors in Northampton and Lehigh Counties that have disabling conditions such as vision loss or walking difficulties which keep them from meeting their own basic care needs. These seniors are receiving no assistance from the government, agencies or friends and family to prepare meals, grocery shop, travel to doctor appointments, do laundry or even bathe. These seniors do not reach out for help. They are "invisible".

This year the United Way Alliance on Aging, in partnership with Catholic Charities, launched the award-winning, national best practice model, Gatekeepers. This innovative model trains employees at companies who interact with seniors during the course of a normal workday, to identify at-risk seniors and anonymously connect them to the social services and medical care they need and deserve.
