COVID 19 Statement

These are exceptional times. With Coronavirus – COVID-19 - we all face an unprecedented global challenge. The Stiltz Group continue to review activities on a daily basis to ensure we comply with safety directives at all times. At the same time, we look to balance this with providing the expected levels of service and support to our customers while being mindful of minimising risk for all concerned.

We are acutely aware that our customers tend to fall into higher risk categories, whether due to age, or as a result of pre-existing medical conditions. Therefore it is all the more important for our current and future customers to maintain their safety and independence at home with the help of their homelifts; this contributes towards the current policy of social distancing, especially important for seniors and those with compromised immune systems. Reduction of accidents within the home at this time will also help minimize the burden on the increasingly stressed healthcare system.

We are keen to ensure those who need new homelifts installed and those who require their lifts to be serviced, can expect these activities to take place without fear of risk to their health. There are multiple online resources that will guide you to assist in providing a safe workplace for your employees and help protect the customers whose home you visit. Two we would recommend are:

CDC - click here to visit
OSHA - click here to visit

We are in this together and are standing by to offer you as much support as possible during this challenging time. If you have any questions, concerns or doubts about anything, please contact your territory manager or the technical services team and we will do our best to assist.

Sincerely

Mark Blomfield

President

Celebrating what Older People Bring to Society on National Senior Citizens Day.

It is now the right time to celebrate the importance and contribution older people bring to society. Many are the anchor of tradition in the family, the source of wisdom younger people look to for guidance and purpose.

Senior citizens in the US are keen to ‘pay it forward’. More than 4.5 million of them are involved as volunteers in projects which benefit a multitude of causes. They have accumulated years of knowledge and experience and are keen to pass this on where possible.

With older adults set to outnumber children for the first time by 2034, this cohort are going to play a significant role in continuing to shape our society. Seniors are now choosing to work into what were traditionally retirement years either in their existing job roles or in a ‘second career’. They are living longer, healthier lives with improved housing and healthcare available.

On National Senior Citizens Day, Stiltz Homelifts are proud to support the mobility needs of America’s older population. When the time comes, our range of residential elevators will help seniors to age in place, making moving between the floors in their home effortlessly smooth and simple.

National Senior Citizens’ Day 21 August 2022.
