Mr Lloyd of Warrington has seen his life change following the installation of a through floor lift from Dolphin Mobility Manchester, along with a bathroom adaptation through his housing association, Your Housing Group. New advances in design and innovation have allowed independent living solutions to become streamlined, aesthetically pleasing and less obtrusive. Significant levels of investment in the development of these products means they now take up far less space in the home, allowing them to be installed in the most confined spaces.

Mr Lloyd is a prime example of someone who has benefitted from these latest advances: “My multiple sclerosis means that using the stairs can be impossible even with a stairlift, so at times I have had to literally live downstairs,” he said. “It was then decided by my Occupational Therapist that the time had come to look at alternative means of getting up and down the stairs.”
After several surveys and assessments, Dolphin Mobility Manchester installed a wheelchair version of the Wessex Home Lift. Clair Wilkinson, Business Development Manager, explains how the installation of independent living solutions like these can help to make the lives of people such as Mr Lloyd much easier: “Independent living solutions are designed to help people become more independent in their homes. At Dolphin, we believe that just because somebody requires assistance with their day to day living, their right to remain in their own home, where they may have lived for decades, should not be taken away.
“We represent all the leading manufacturers and being an independent advisor we are able to give the appropriate advice and guidance on purchasing the best product for individual requirements. When Mr Lloyd came to see us, we realised his MS meant he would be unable to use his standing stairlift, so we suggested a through-the-floor lift as a suitable alternative that would meet his individual requirements.”
Mr Lloyd said: “The through-the-floor lift from Dolphin has completely changed my life and I would highly recommend Dolphin Mobility to people in my position – it is a brilliant company to work with and I was very impressed with the high standard of work that was carried out. The engineers took a day to prepare everything and within two days all the work had been completed.
Clair added: “I am delighted with Mr Lloyd’s positive feedback and we are always at the end of the phone should he require any further assistance.”
