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.

Parkinson’s Awareness Week is an annual opportunity for individuals who have Parkinson’s and those who support them to connect, learn and get inspired by others.

Parkinson’s Awareness Week aims to raise awareness of the condition, change the public’s attitude towards the condition, raise funds for vital research and raise awareness of both the support and services available to anyone affected.

Individuals with Parkinson’s often find mobility and safety around the home can become a problem as the condition progresses, specifically around the stairs. There is a range of different services and options available to those affected, including a home adaptation.

Stiltz Home Lift is a safe and easy way for individuals to travel between the floors of their home. A domestic lift can help senior individuals to stay in the home they love for longer. All Stiltz Home Lifts come with a range of safety features as standard and have some optional extras, including an In-car seat, interior grab rails and bespoke lining finishes (such as additional in-car padding).

With their unique footprints and unrivalled ability to fit into almost any home, domestic lifts are considered a safer alternative to the traditional stairlift and can provide extra help when moving around the house.

Stiltz Home Lifts are proud to support Parkinson’s Awareness Week and to share a comment from our Customer Mrs Lees who has Parkinson’s:

“Love my lift. Have shown it to several friends, and two fellow Parkinsons have already had Stiltz domestic lifts installed as a result. The domestic lift has made all of our lives so much easier, from doing the washing to going on holiday. Even our little dog uses it to come down with me.”
