Stiltz helps lift St John out of lockdown.

St John Healthcare has become the Premier Partner for Stiltz Home Lifts in the Channel Islands.

The partnership with the UK based lift company was signed earlier this year, but the official announcement was put on-hold during the recent lockdown as members of St John Healthcare team who normally install and service lifts were redeployed to supporting the delivery of urgent healthcare products to care homes and those with extra care needs living at home, with only essential maintenance of lifts being carried out.

Gina Gooding said: “We are delighted to have been made Premier Partners. At St John Healthcare we aim to support people who need some extra help at home. We know a lot of people want to stay in their own house, but find it hard to manage with stairs. The Stiltz Home Lift partnership means we can offer people another option to help them stay in their own home for longer. As the lockdown restrictions start to be relaxed, we will be able to start visiting customers who have already expressed an interest in a through the floor lift.”

Our experienced St John Healthcare engineer has been trained by Stilitz in the UK, which enables them to undertake surveys, installation and servicing of the lifts in Guernsey.

Stiltz Home Lifts are fitted between the floor and the ceiling and can travel up to three floors depending on model. They offer a safe and stylistic alternative to a traditional stairlift.  By providing an affordable solution to mobility and access issues, it allows people to stay in the home they love for longer. The unique Stiltz range are the first and only lifts of their kind to be available in the British Isles.

Stiltz Home Lifts are designed to be spacious, comfortable and safe, and thanks to the compact footprint and drive mechanism the lists can be fitted into almost any home, offering an ideal and alternative to a stairlift. A home lift can carry up to three people or a wheelchair if required.

Gina Gooding added: “This partnership fits well with the vision of the Supported Living and Aging Well Strategy and is another example of how St John is helping to improve the lives of islanders. It also has wider benefits for the community because St John Healthcare is a not for profit organisation which supports the charitable work of St John Ambulance Guernsey locally.”
