Dignity Lifts - Toilet Lifts, offers a lineup of toilet lifts for people who want to continue to live independently. These electrically lifting toilet seats help people avoid getting stuck on the toilet, avoid bathroom falls, and avoid having to enlist the help of another person in the restroom. Dignity Lifts help people maintain their independence and dignity.Toilet lifts are an important innovation in our current society. According to the AARP 90% of Americans want to remain in their homes as they age. Since the pandemic began, this number is expected to rise. Americans aren’t interested in voluntarily moving to a nursing home or care facility. They want the comfort and familiarity of home.
The bathroom is where people want the most independence. Requiring bathroom assistance is often mentioned as the most embarrassing part of aging. No one wants to get stuck or need help on the toilet. But bathroom related issues are often what cause a person to move to a care facility.
Bathroom falls make up 75% of all falls in the home and falls are often related to early demise. Dignity Lifts aims to make toileting safer. Bathing is also dangerous, but many elders have someone that stops by multiple times per week to help them bathe. If you need help on the toilet, you’ll require 24 hour care, and will likely force you to move to a facility. “A much more affordable and dignified approach is to install a toilet lift.” says Tom Nardone, President of Dignity Lifts. “Anyone who uses a walker would be wise to consider using a toilet lift.” Much like a walker, a toilet lift provides stability and assistance to people with leg weakness and balance issues.
Until toilet lifts become more popular, many people will still use a taller toilet seat. This may seem like a good solution, but tall toilet seats make it difficult to complete a bowel movement. The result can be painful constipation. Tall toilet seats also cause your legs to fall asleep and that increases the chance of a fall. A lifting toilet seat is a better answer. Dignity Lifts allow you to lower yourself to a normal toilet height so your bowels evacuate easily, then you can slowly raise yourself back to a standing position so you won’t fall. The movement is smooth and paced properly to avoid accidents.Dignity Lifts are very sturdy. They have four feet to solidly plant themselves on the floor. These lifts provide much more stability than just a toilet or raised toilet seat. Dignity Lifts are a solid solution to balance and leg-strength issues.
Dignity Lifts offers three different electric toilet lifts and is introducing a fourth. They offer lifts that are designed for the home and even one that is meant for commercial facilities. Dignity Lifts are reasonably priced too. They range from $999 to $2,999. Their most popular model is the Deluxe Toilet Lift - DL1 for $1,499. These prices are significantly less than hiring a care provider to help in the bathroom.
