This week we returned to the home of care worker, Carl Lamptey and his family, to find out how life has changed since a Terry Lifts Melody 3 vertical platform lift was installed as part of ITV Love Your Garden transformation, Woodland Wonders.
Before the makeover the garden was accessed by several steps from a raised patio and largely laid to lawn. Entering the space was a challenge for Carl’s wife, Elle who had been diagnosed with a spinal disability and could no longer walk properly.
We were asked by the Love Your Garden team to provide a solution. We installed a Melody 3 vertical platform lift in anthracite black with glass doors and side panels. The lift has proven to be a life-changer for Elle.
“The lift has made a huge difference to my quality of life and had a big impact on family life,” comments, Elle. “I can spend time in the garden with my children without having to rely on anyone else. I have my independence back.
“I’m naturally an outdoor person and the lift enables me to use the garden again – to relax, eat and play with the children. I just wish I could have had it sooner, and that they were available to anyone who needs one. It’s an absolute game-changer!”
Travelling a maximum of three metres the Melody 3 vertical platform lift from Terry Lifts can accommodate virtually any manual or powered wheelchair, and a carer. It can be sited internally or externally.
