Rent Or Buy? Discover Which Home Accessibility Option Works Best

No one expects to find themselves limited in their mobility. One of the most frustrating moments of recovery from an injury may be realizing that you can no longer navigate your home. What do you do when you know you’ll be in a wheelchair for months or for the rest of your life? How do you rebuild your strength while rebuilding your autonomy?

A Cost Effective, Temporary Alternative

Not all disabilities are permanent. A minor surgery that only requires a few months of physical therapy doesn’t necessarily justify the investment of purchasing home accessibility products. However, that doesn’t mean you need to heal in a home that doesn’t meet your current needs. Home Healthsmith offers temporary solutions for getting around so that you can enjoy living in a home while catering to your recovery.

Home Mobility Rental Products

Home Healthsmith offers a variety of in home mobility products for rent in RI, MA & CT. From stairlifts, wheelchair ramps, portable ceiling lifts to electric toilet lifts and more. At  Home Healthsmith™, we have found these to be some of our most important and essential products. However, we also know that not every family can afford to purchase these in home mobility products and fixtures. We want those with temporary mobility concerns to feel comfortable in knowing that their home can be habitable and safe without worrying about another expensive purchase, by offering them an affordable rental option.

With short term mobility rentals, we take the time and care necessary to help our customers find the right fit for their home and lifestyle, as well as coordinating the installation and disassembly after the rental period is complete. Therefore, we require a reasonable minimum rental period, depending on the product.

Renting vs. Buying

Let’s say you know for a fact that you’re going to use a product for longer than a few months. Why rent?

According to a 2017 Pew Research Center article, today more Americans are renting versus buying than ever before. Although the Pew Research Center article is speaking specifically about home ownership, it’s no secret that when it comes to anything around the house, renting has its benefits. As always, we are available to help you choose the right product, and then install those  products into your home.

Remember that purchasing is always an option, should you be unsure about renting vs buying. Either way, we will handle all of your installation needs, as well as return to check on the product when needed, just to make sure it’s working for you.

If you think renting would be the better financial choice, give us a call at 401-293-0415 for a free assessment. We can help you discover your options.
