I can barely climb stairs any longer. If I have handrails on both sides I can slowly and laboriously make my way up, but barely.
I’m curious as to what others have done to retrofit their homes for a solution.
We have four fairly high rise steps to get into our house from the garage. We are exploring hydraulic lifts, but haven’t reached a conclusion yet.
My husband and I plan to retire south, where most homes are built on slabs and have no stairs. But that is 7 years away, and we are exploring solutions to the stairs from our garage into our home in the meantime. I’m guessing that my ability to struggle up those four steps will only diminish in the next seven years.
Has anyone had a challenge like this, and found a good solution?

Hi Jersey girl
Like you, I have sudently found myself unable to climb stair. Kind of freaks me out how suddenly it has progressed. I am planning to move into a ranch style home in my community in the next year or so. I have noticed that there are a few homes around that have ramps that look like they may be a commercial variety. I am not sure if their is a website that sells these whole sale. I love the idea of moving south since I live in East Coast and I dred the winter LOL
Sending you good thought and wishes for answer to your problem with stairs
