Mental Health

March 7th, 2016 (No Comments)

Mental Health in Later Life It will come as no surprise to learn that the great majority of Newbury Mobility’s customers are over the age of 60. This is, of course, the classic time when our mobility begins to become compromised and we start needing some help to get from A to B. And while […]

History of Stair Lifts

February 26th, 2016 (No Comments)

Stair Lifts – A History Hauling Henry These days, we’ve become used to, reliable, safe, well-constructed, state-of-the-art stair lifts that come with sophisticated electronics and hand-held remote controls.

Obtaining a Stair Lift with a Disabled Facilities Grant We recently took a look at the cost of stair lifts and explained how Newbury Mobility is able to offer basic, straight, used stair lifts from as little as £895.00.

Clogging up the Works In my last post about User Manuals and Safety Warnings, I suggested that in future I might share with you some of the mishaps that the customers of Newbury Mobility have experienced – despite all those safety warnings.

Stair Lift User Manuals

Stair Lift User Manuals – What They Don’t Tell You The other day, a client asked me a specific question about the remote control on his newly-fitted straight stair lift. So I opened up the User Manual at the relevant page and explained to him what each button is for and how best to use […]
