When Dave Austin became the exclusive distributor of the patented SureHands patient lift system in Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Connecticut, he never realized that he was about to embark on a career that would transform him into a consultant and advocate for persons with disabilities.
Almost 15 years ago, when Austin founded Lift & Care Systems in Lakeville, MA, he set out to explore the market for SureHands ceiling mounted lifts. What he found instead was an amazing community of persons with mobility problems who had varying levels of needs requiring an array of customized solutions. Over the years, Lift & Care’s product line has expanded along with Austin’s first-hand knowledge of the needs, wants, and likes of his clients, as well as those of their families and caregivers.
Looking back over the past 15 years, Austin noted, “What has impressed me most is the optimism and determination to help loved ones and the people they serve. It’s heartwarming and joyous to see the better side of people and to really make a difference in people’s lives.”
As a full service company, Lift & Care Systems now offers Bruno Stair lifts, National Ramp systems, Power Access door openers, and vertical lifts (in Rhode Island only), in addition to SureHands patient lift systems and accessories.
The hallmark of Lift & Care Systems’ business plan offers a personal touch, emphasizing hands-on training that enables persons with disabilities to enjoy an even greater degree of mobility by becoming more familiar with all aspects of the operation of the SureHands patient lift system. Training sessions for users and caregivers also include tips on learning how to obtain optimal performance of the system as well as routine service to properly maintain the equipment.
SureHands Lift Systems
The SureHands system of ceiling mounted lifts enables thousands of users with disabilities to have easier access to the basics of bed, bath, or toilet. It is also amazingly able to assist persons with disabilities with everyday tasks such as changing clothes, standing and ambulating, or even taking a swim or mounting a horse.
SureHands patient lift systems are so remarkable that they have been featured on two episodes of ABC-TV's "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition." During these episodes a SureHands lift & care system was installed to help make a home ADA compliant and enable the resident to transfer and accomplish his normal activities for daily living. This multi-directional SureHands system was mounted to the ceiling connecting the bedroom to the bath, allowing the resident greater mobility, free of floor based obstacles.
