Hi there,

I’m new here - my mum’s metastatic breast cancer has recently spread to her brain and things are progressing very quickly. Her balance and mobility is being significantly affected so my dad and I would like to get a stairlift fitted to help her. We have been told that hiring a stairlift is a thing?? If anyone has any experience of this and could recommend some websites or companies or just general advice that would be fantastic.

Thanks so much

  • Hi sophnh

    a warm welcome to the group. So sorry to hear about all that is going on with your mum. Life's too cruel.

    I know its possible to rent a stairlift as  family friend did it last year to help her elderly husband. I'll check what company she used and let you know  

    In the meantime I found these links that might help

    Might also be worth a call to your GP and ask for an occupational health referral as there may be other aids they can offer to help make things easier.
