Overhead lifts or ceiling lifts can allow you to remain in your own home longer. They will decrease the need for more than one caregiver to assist with transfers. In 13 years doing occupational therapy, I have seen hundreds of patients forced into leaving their home because they were unable to transfer throughout their current home environment.
There are many options with these lifts. There are portable lifts that can be moved from room to room throughout your home or taken along for travel. There are also ceiling track lifts that can be installed in areas of your home where transfers occur such as a bedroom, bathroom or living room.
Ceiling lifts can also reduce injuries to staff and decrease staff needed in assisted living or similar facilities.
A battery-powered lift system lowers costs and helps to protect both caregivers and users from injury. The sturdy lift can make potentially challenging transfers smooth.
