My friend, whose grandmother lives in his house, told me that she just stays on their second floor because the grand old lady is finding it difficult to go down the stairs. Why? know..the typical rheumatism, and arthritis which hits people when they reach their 60’s and up.

So what is he going to do with his grandmother so he can go around more easily in their house? I told him, he does not have to repair his house to put in an elevator or escalator since his house is not too huge, hehehe, otherwise people will talk about it, apart from being too expensive. I suggested that he can try putting in a stairlifts – a much simpler approach. A stairlift is a mechanical device for lifting people and wheelchairs up and down stairs….just that! He does not have to complicate things, and he can bought them cheaply and install them easily.

O diba?
