    As we age and because of potential illnesses and injuries, if you build or rent a two story house, you might consider a master bedroom on the ground floor.

    Many foreigners have been found dead here weeks after they passed away alone in their homes. I've experienced power outages that lasted weeks to months. It isn't just power outages you need to worry about here, it is also power surges that damage and put additional strain on electronic equipment. Many homes do not have adequate mobile service (which would likely be worse inside a lift surrounded by a glass and metal enclosure). Do landlines here work during power outages like they do in the West? Not that it matters since landlines are hung right next to the power lines instead of buried to protect them from the elements.

    Just because you can afford something doesn't mean you understand how that thing works or what the best practices are, and you absolutely should not rely on local companies to fill you in on what those best practices are. While it is something I/you would inquire about I'm quite sure there are many people that would not even think to ask until they are already stuck in a lift.

    There are many situations in which a person could get stuck in a home lift and not have an immediate way to get out. The younger/healthier you are the better chance you have at walking away from that, but these generally aren't the people having home life installed. It is definitely something to think and inquire about.
