12:13:00     From  Leslie McTyre : weight

12:16:14     From  Louis Tenenbaum : I have long been passionate advocate (and formerly dealer) for ceiling lifts. So often home modification inquiries are really about the difficulty of transfers rather than home design problems. Ceiling lifts removes the strength requirement for a caregiver, allowing more important factors like caring, cancer, pleasantness to be prioritized. port

12:17:33     From  Louis Tenenbaum : In addition they can be installed quickly, so the time and hassle of substantial home remodeling may not be necessary. Louis Tenenbaum,  Louis@homesrenewed.org

12:19:57     From  Louis Tenenbaum : With fixed lifts and motorized travel a person with no leg mobility can also transfer themselves.

12:22:48     From  Jane Eleey : what about apartment/condo buildings

12:33:38     From  Kelly Lambert : The weight of a client has nothing to do with lifting at the end of the day! We have had 80 lb. clients with a 250 lb. male caregiver... dead weight is dead weight! This lift would save the back of everyone and give a sense of independence to the client. Without this kind of system, our agency would deem the client "bedbound"

12:34:06     From  Monique Harkless : what is the maintenance/repair costs associated with the lift?

12:39:45     From  Leslie McTyre : Vey useful info for my back!!

12:40:36     From  Jane Eleey : Cost of purchase and installation for homes?

12:48:16     From  Louis Tenenbaum : I had my unit at a resources fair a few years ago.  Kids rode up and down in it.  They thought it was a ride.

12:51:42     From  Jane Eleey : Cost for portable vs. fixed?

12:54:57     From  Steve Gurney - ProAging Community : Understanding Self-Directed Care https://www.retirementlivingsourcebook.com/videos/understanding-self-directed-care

12:55:51     From  Raigen Stiefel : I've got to go.  Thank you for the great information!
