Adaptations deliverers are being given new steps to expediate solutions and minimise risk for clients needing support with a new initiative
We’re already better known as the stairclimber people, so we’ve invested in a significant increase in our stockholding capability for our #1 selling S-Max stairclimber.
As a result, the machine can be delivered to the client within three working days of receipt of order (subject to T&Cs), compared to the weeks- or months- currently offered by alternative inter-floor transfer options.
Dealing with stairs is one of the four most common requirements for adaptations and causes for delay in hospital discharge.
Minimising the risk of inter-floor transfer is therefore a major priority for anyone involved in delivery of adaptations.
Utilising a stairclimber minimises that risk, without any of the disruption to the household of moving beds downstairs, impeding stair access for others etc.
The S-Max is proven to be a viable solution in almost all stair configuration. It has an impeccable safety record. It can be used by almost any carer; we provide full training as part of the supply package.
“An S-Max stairclimber, is a quick, cost-effective answer to dealing with the growing backlog of adaptations: almost all local authorities have at least one on their books, which can be re-issued for less than £1000.
“By investing in our stockholding, we are further committing to support the sector in addressing the backlog, enabling us to deliver a new stairclimber to the client within three working days of order, if there is not one available in stores.
“Even if provided as a short-term solution whilst a more permanent fixture is achieved, it offers OTs, Trusted Assessors et al to minimise risk incredibly quickly. It gives client a safe, easy to use option to access all levels of their home. It goes beyond, into the garden or wider community, in almost all stair/step scenarios.”Peter Wingrave, AAT Director
