There are various Mobility Grants available for stairlifts and home adaptations in Ireland. These grants are designed to allow one to age successfully in your home.
How Stairlift Grants Work
If you need a stairlift, or changes to your home that are designed to address mobility problems, you may be entitled to a grant from you local council.
Usually your local authority’s Housing Department will look after this – they will provide you with the requisite forms and let you know what paperwork you need to provide.
You (or the enduser) may be means tested to see if you are eligible for a grant.
N.B. If you live in a council house you may be entitled to a stairlift that is 100% funded – contact your housing department to find out more.
Rental stairlifts are a popular temporary option if you are waiting for stairlift grant approval. Sometimes grant approval can take a long time and renting a stairlift in the meantime is a common solution to this problem.
Able Plus Stairlifts have nearly twenty years experience in installing grant funded stairlifts. We offer free advice on applying for the grant, filling in the forms and any other questions you may have.
