Pneumatic Vacuum Elevators would like to show our gratitude toward very important people in our lives, our grandparents. On Sunday September 13th, 2020, we celebrate National Grandparents Day. According to the website grandparentsday.org, National Grandparents day is a contribution of two devoted individuals, Jacob Reingold and Marian McQuade.
In the early 1970’s McQuade began a movement to create a special day for grandparents. Her work proved worthwhile. Just three years later, the first Grandparents Day was proclaimed in West Virginia.
As advances in technology and medicine have allowed our grandparents to live longer and more fulfilling lives, it is often the responsibility of loved ones and relatives to assist Grandparents who may develop disabilities over time. With nursing homes becoming less of a viable option due to safety concerns, having parents and grandparents move into ones home is more common than ever. Often peoples homes are not designed with additional accessibility to the upper levels to assist those in need which can prove to be an obstacle.
Thankfully, Vacuum Elevators have become the ideal retro-fit solution for those seeking additional accessibility in their homes. With no shaft, pit or machine room required, these innovative home elevators simply rest on the existing ground floor allowing a lot more flexibility with were they can be installed in a residence.
