Here at the Home Lift Experts, we are already looking at ways as to how we can make life easier for customers. That is why in our latest post we have come up with the top three ways to make getting around easier for wheelchair users.

1 Assistive Driving

Events are a great place to keep up to date with the latest innovations in the mobility industry.

One example of an event coming up, which has focus on young or recently disabled people who want to try assistive driving is Get Going Live! and is being held at Queen Elizabeth’s Foundation for Disabled People (QEF), 1 Metcalfe Avenue, Carshalton SM5 4NR.

More events can be found on the AgeUK website but the events calendar is for anyone who has an interest in the latest and upcoming mobility solutions.

2. Download an app

Travelling around the UK independently can be challenging for wheelchair users.

In response to this, a number of apps have been developed which can help you to plan ahead and iron out any potential difficulties you might encounter before you leave the house.

A few apps focus on finding a suitable place to stop for a comfort break. One we have found is called Wheelmate. When you download the app, it asks you for your location and tells you which toilets are nearest to where you are now. You can also type in a town you are planning to visit and it tells you where the accessible washrooms are.

3. Install a home lift

If you live in a multi-storey property and you want to enhance your quality of life at home. Home lifts offer you access to all areas of your home, day and night.

These days, domestic lifts are more adaptable, accessible and affordable than ever before. They provide a home owner with huge amounts of independence and freedom. If you want to explore your options, there is a range of home lifts available. Here is a range of home lift companies from high end to mid-range and lead-in options.
