Watching a loved one struggle is nearly as difficult as being the one struggling. Just ask Jackie Johnson, whose husband, Stanley, suffers from Parkinson’s Disease. As Stan’s health worsened, the stairs leading up to their bungalow became increasingly treacherous, and Stan was spending more time confined inside.
“He isn’t really mobile,” Jackie says. “When he went up and down the stairs on occasion he has fallen because of his mobility issues with the Parkinson’s.”
Then one day Jackie saw a TV commercial for a stair lift, and the light bulb went on in her head. After researching her options she purchased the Indy Pinnacle from Nationwide Lifts, and in doing so opened a whole new level of freedom for Stan.
“It has really helped my husband’s mobility,” Jackie says. “Now he’s able to come from upstairs occasionally.”
The the stair lift also has become an unexpectedly helpful tool for Jackie — when she goes grocery shopping.
“I put my groceries on the lift and they go right up to the top of the stairs,” she says. “We live alone and it’s really a blessing to have this particular apparatus. I’m so glad I’m able to put the groceries on that chair.”
