This is what I use with a simple wooden ladder:

These extensions are simply clamped to the feet of almost any ladder.

BTW, ist that post before BigB's spam? Looks a bit fishy to me.

If it's a lot of agony to get at the bulb to change it, maybe use an LED bulb that is supposed to last much longer.

Despite the original post being from 2005, BigB's answer is right on. I was not lucky enough to borrow a painter's and paid nearly 100 bucks at a paint store. But it had to get done, and NOW! So I bit the bullet and now we have one. Just have to keep some Goober from leaving it on a job. Works on roofs too. To use it with a stepladder may take 2.

We once (not on stairs but in a high lobby) stood an extension ladder straight up and 2 guys held it while I went up and changed a lamp...pretty good if you're in the circus...I'm not! You learn a lot about leverage doing that (and working one-handed).
