Evidence-based material will highlight the practical and emotional benefits of a homelift vs. stairlift with a particular focus on safety and confidence. Potential cost savings to the NHS, personal budgets and social services will also be outlined so that attendees can understand more fully how clients can enhance their own care.

With an attractive homelift, upstairs access is future-proofed without the need for complex building conversions, negating the need to relocate and simultaneously adding value. Client stories will be evidenced to demonstrate how users with varying conditions make use of a homelift to transfer within the home.

Complementing the seminar, Stiltz trusted advisors will be available on stand 13 to discuss appropriate homelift provision and their client-centric services.

Free educational and signposting information will also be available including guidance on achieving successful DFG applications.

The upcoming Occupational Therapy Adaptations Conference (OTAC) Midlands is being held at the Drayton Manor Hotel, Drayton Manor Theme Park, Drayton Bassett, B78 3TW, which takes place on the 22nd of January 2020.
