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.

Stiltz Home Lifts will present an enhanced CPD-accredited seminar regarding independent mobility in the community through home lift ownership at a forthcoming OTAC Midlands event.

In this educational presentation for healthcare and housing professionals, Gino Farruggio, Trade Sales Director for Stiltz Home Lifts UK, will discuss how next generation domestic lifts enable client independence and well-being. The assessment process will be examined from a clinical point of view alongside transfers and how specific wheelchairs facilitate greater manoeuvrability.

Evidence-based material will highlight the practical and emotional benefits of a home lift v stairlift with a particular focus on safety and confidence. Potential cost savings to the NHS, personal budgets and social services will also be outlined so that attendees can understand more fully how clients can enhance their own care.

With an attractive home lift, upstairs access is future-proofed without the need for complex building conversions – hence negating the need to relocate and simultaneously adding value. Home lift customer stories will be evidenced to demonstrate how users with varying conditions make use of a domestic lift to transfer within the home.

Complementing the seminar, Stiltz trusted advisors will be available on stand 13 to discuss appropriate home lift provision and their client-centric services. Free educational and signposting information will be available including guidance on achieving successful DFG applications.
