An article from the Boston Globe “The rich are different. They have home elevators” explains how home elevators in NY have become increasingly popular over the years. It’s a fact that elevators and lifts have become more affordable now and many people are installing them in their new or existing homes. Ideal for aging parents or people with limited mobility, these devices improve the floor-to-floor accessibility of your residence and increase the value of your home.
Elevator lifts can offer your home a luxurious feel and are a practical solution for the elderly to access every level of their home. They are also helpful in moving heavy items like furniture, luggage, groceries and so on safely. Safety is a major concern with these systems at home as well as other buildings and taking this as a great consideration, the Federal Government has announced a grant of $1,54,000 for a senior residence in Hudson, New York to enhance their safety upgrades like replacing the building’s aged elevator that is almost 40 years old and prone to frequent breakdowns. This announcement is important and would ensure that the seniors have affordable, safe and dignified housing.
