Dignity Lifts prevent falls.Bathroom falls are especially dangerous because there are many hard surfaces. You need a safe, steady way to stand up. Toilet lifts won't leave you lightheaded. The Dignity Lifts BL1 is a steady, safe way to stand up.
When is a good time to consider a dignity lift? One sign you will benefit from using our lift is when you start using a walker. The need to steady yourself when walking is an indication that you will probably also need assistance standing after using the toilet. You should also consider a dignity lift if you have trouble standing up from a seated position. Many customers buy a toilet lift when they are faced with the possibility of moving into assisted living. People we speak with want to stay in their homes. They don't want to move, so getting a lift to help them off the toilet makes sense.
Toilet Lifts Can Save You Money. We try to make our lifts as affordable as possible, and this is our most affordable model. It is also far more affordable than the alternatives. The average price for a room in Assisted Living in the USA is now over $4,000 a month, this doesn't include the cost of moving you in, cleaning up your old house, and selling everything. Another expensive alternative is full time care. Finally, even diapering is more expensive that purchasing a toilet lift.
The Dignity Lift BL1 works with most toilets. It will work with toilets that have bowl heights of 16 inches all the way up to 18 inch bowl heights. The lift adjusts with its adjustable feet. (more info here)
The Dignity Lifts BL1 will likely fit in your bathroom. The lift has an overall width of 23 7/8" and a depth of 27". The toilet nook in houses is supposed to be at least 24" (per building code) so this lift fits in normal bathrooms. (more info here)
The Dignity Lifts BL1 will fit you. Our basic lift has a weight limit of 300 pounds and the distance between handles is 20", which is as wide as most office chairs.
The BL1 will stand you all of the way up. The lift raises the back of the toilet seat 9 inches. Typically the lift begins at 18" and ends at 27" tall.
Installing a Dignity Lift is easy. It is as simple as removing your current toilet seat and putting the Dignity Lift BL1 in its place. The BL1 is a little heavy, so you want to make sure the installer can lift 50 pounds, but once in place, it is extremely stable and secure. If you don't think you are able to install the lift yourself, we offer White Glove Delivery as well. We also offer installation videos (see below) so you or your handyman will have no trouble installing your toilet lift.
The BL1 plugs into the wall. Be sure the plug is on a GFI circuit (bathroom circuits require this to prevent electrical shocks). If you have a plug near your toilet, maybe one you use for a blow dryer or shaver, that will work. Do not run an extension cord from a different room to power your Dignity Lift. Outlets outside the bathroom are not safe for applications that are close to water. If you don't have good access at the toilet to electricity, you should consider our Deluxe Toilet Lift - DL1 it has a rechargeable battery that only needs to be charged once per month.
