Statement
COVID-19

Issued 4th November 2020

Coronavirus: Covid-19 continues to bring an unprecedented global challenge. Stiltz Ltd. has been and will continue to review activities daily to comply with the guidelines issued by the Government.

Stiltz is a proud member of the British Healthcare Trades Association (BHTA) through whom we are co-ordinating industry efforts to keep the most vulnerable living safely in their own homes.

Reducing the instance of accidents within the home will help reduce stress on the NHS hospital care system. 

For existing customers, a Stiltz Homelift can be that lifeline to independence. Our home care support policy means Stiltz engineers continue to provide an essential service by maintaining customers’ lifts for ongoing safe, reliable and independent access while acting within Government guidelines.

You can contact our service and breakdown helpline any time, day or night, on 0330 053 5749.

For new homelift installations, we offer the options of a phone call, remote video consultation via tablet/laptop/smartphone, or email consultation. For those with an urgent in-home consultation need, we will minimise risk by following the latest Government guidelines.

Additional processes have been put in place to mitigate risk to you, our staff and the wider Stiltz community:

We will request confirmation that nobody at the property we are due to visit has Covid-19 or is defined as extremely vulnerable. If Covid-19 is present, or a person is isolating or deemed as extremely vulnerable, we will follow government advice.

All customer visits will be subject to additional sanitation measures. Stiltz installers/engineers will wash or sanitise their hands before entering your property and upon leaving. They will not offer to shake hands, will refuse offers of a beverage and will maintain the prescribed 2-metre distance.

All office and field-based staff will continue to be issued regular health and safety bulletins.

All field-based staff will confirm they are clear of symptoms before commencing their working day.

All staff who fall ill with Covid-19 or who are self-isolating will receive full pay during the period they are indisposed.

Stiltz will follow government advice at all times. We all owe a duty of care to our families, other employees, our customers and the rest of our community. Our priority is customer and staff safety whilst continuing to provide the necessary home care support to ensure vital independence.

When you’re a homeowner the one question that inevitably crops up is, ‘should I move or improve?’ And that conundrum is never more crucial than when your mobility is pressing you for an answer. If this is something you’re reluctantly considering, read on to learn just how easy it can be to stay in the home you love. A Stiltz home lift is the stylish, modern solution that you’ve probably not considered. But you should.

Forever Homeowners

Historically, once children had flown the nest, you became part of ‘Generation Downsize’ and your thoughts would turn to bungalows or even retirement apartments. How times have changed. Now the savvy, senior homeowner is looking to stay in the family home, on their own terms and surrounded by their close-knit community and support network. These last two years especially, we have had to ask a lot more from the space in our homes than ever before.

A recent survey from Legal and General Financial Advice confirms that today’s retiring or retired professionals are not looking to downsize in the numbers we used to see, “The drop in over 55’s considering downsizing means that over the course of the last three years, there has been a growing trend in ‘Forever Homeowners’ who now want to stay put.”

As for moving, not only is it stressful, time-consuming and costly but the housing stock of bungalows is very poor. While downsizing to a flat brings you back to the issue of losing much-valued space. ­

As we can see, the case for staying is very strong but how do you achieve your dream of being able to live well, in confidence, when you are beginning to find the stairs a challenge? Do you rip out the garage and create an annexe or even turn a downstairs room into a bedroom? Remodelling projects are not a quick fix and are often an uneasy compromise. In addition, building materials are at an all-time high as are waiting times to get a project underway. You also need to factor in having to live in your home while structural work takes place. The reality is that you don’t need to do anything as drastic, costly or time-consuming. A multi-award-winning Stiltz domestic lift could be the smart solution you’re looking for and there’s no need for complex construction, an army of builders or spiralling materials costs.
