Lifeway Mobility, your local accessibility experts, offer access solutions that are both safe and affordable, especially when compared with the cost of a nursing home or assisted living. However, if the purchase of a new lift, ramp, or accessible bathing system does not fit into your budget, there are a variety of funding and payment options that can help make your home modification more affordable.

Value vs Cost

When determining affordability, lower cost does not always equal a better value! A quality product with expert installation and service at a reasonable cost will almost always equal the best value.

Payment Options

  • Financing: For those in need of an accessibility solution but are unable to pay for the entire cost up-front, monthly payment options are available for qualified buyers.
  • Pre-Owned/Certified-Used Equipment: High-quality certified used stair lifts and used wheelchair ramps in great condition are available at discounted prices.
  • Rental Straight Stair Lifts and Ramps: Rental stair lifts and rental wheelchair ramps are perfect for short-term needs, or if paying for the lift immediately does not fit into your budget.

Funding Sources & Options

  • Waivers
  • Grants
  • Home Equity Loans
  • VA
  • Reverse Mortgages & more
