Stay in your own home for longer
More and more people are now looking to stay in their own homes for longer and modern mobility companies such as Mobility Direct are constantly sourcing new products to help customers make their homes own easier to live in and more accessible.
Jack from Mobility Direct says: “Over the last year we have seen a sharp rise in people contacting us asking us to help them to make their homes more user friendly.
Residents already living in Spain express an interest to stay in their own homes as long as possible, after all your own home is your biggest investment.”
Mobility Direct Can Help
Mobility Direct can help to make your home easier to manage by supplying an excellent range of products. One of the major problems in a home is always the stairs, or access to other levels of the house.
When a person starts experiencing problems with walking up the stairs, the first call is normally to a company which supplies stair lifts.
“The service from Mobility Direct is unique to the Costa Blanca. Not only can we supply stair lifts but because of our extensive supplier base we can also supply platform lifts, cabinet lifts, and bath lifts.
We are actually the only company on the Costa Blanca that can offer an in-house service with the complete range of mobility products; anything from a walker to a cabinet lift.”
The Customer Care Pack
Because of its long list of suppliers Mobility Direct has been able to put together a new service. It is called the Customer Care Pack and includes everything a person would need to remain independent in his or her home as long as possible.
The Care Pack is individually tailored to the customers needs
A Care Pack was recently supplied to Mr and Mrs Collins in Javea and the pack included a hoist, plat form lift and the bath room was fitted with the necessary equipment so that Mrs Collins was able to continue to care for her husband at home.
A certain stigma is normally attached to mobility products but this is something which Mobility Direct is seeing less and less of. According to Jack, the owner of Mobility Direct, people are beginning to realize that products are available to make their daily lives easier, and nothing to be embarrassed or concerned about.
“The right mobility products let you get on with enjoying your life whilst at the same time making your life easier and therefore you have less to worry about. And I really believe that it is important to be able to stay in your own home as long as possible as this definitely ads to your quality of life.”
A lifting experience
One of the main reason people call us is to talk to us about stairlifts. We supply straight, curved and outside stairlifts and we can even fit reconditioned straight stairlifts. Repairs, emergency call outs, new batteries are also part of the package.
Over 90% of the calls that we receive is actually an accessibility problem. That actually means that we are constantly dealing with lifts not just supplying the odd lift here and there, and we are now really good at helping people re-gain the use of their entire home as Spanish design can present us with some unique problems.
We are all trained by the manufacturers of our lifts, and we keep up to date with all the new ideas that come on to the market Jack goes on to say If the ideas are good we take then on but we are not only about stair lifts. We also supply plat form lifts, ceiling hoists systems and complete home care packages including beds and riser/recliner arm chairs all with 2 years warranty.
As a company we have been operating in Spain for 8 years now but we actually have 22 years experience in the industry.
