At one point in time, the need to purchase a lift chair recliner
emerges either due to old age or sickness that limits mobility. You may ask why it is important to have this chair while an ordinary chair can just serve the purpose. It is remarkable to note that this chair comes with added features that seclude it from just being a normal one.
Here are 5 benefits you are likely to gain by purchasing a lift chair recliner:
1. Creates a sense of independence
Lift chair recliners help the elderly or people with a limited range of mobility to stand and sit without the need of a helping hand. These chairs come with a handset to help the users adjust it to any position. For instance, if you want to sit you can just use the remote control and raise your chair to the position you are comfortable. You can then lower the chair after sitting just by pressing the operating button. With such assistance, the user does not need a person standing by to help in supporting him/her stand or sit.
2. Helps reduce the risk of injury
Unlike other sitting positions that may be too low for a person with mobility problems to bend, lift chair recliners are adjustable to a high comfortable position. Such a measure helps the elderly avoid straining their back and muscles when they either need to stand up or sit down. Besides, they reduce the risk of falling when one isn't able to cope with the sudden change of standing from a low sitting position. Lift chair recliners also minimize the possibility of injury to the elderly caretakers by reducing the need for them to raise them a low sitting position.
3. Saves time for the caregivers
Without a lift chair recliner, it becomes a necessity to have a nursing attendant by the elderly's side in case he/she needs to stand up or sit down. However, with such a chair, one can attend to other issues knowing that your loved one does not need you there all the time. Also, these chairs can be adjusted to a comfortable position in case the user needs to sleep. So, you do not have to keep transferring the elderly from these chair to their beds when they need to take a nap.
4. Provides comfort
Lift chair recliners
come with a variety of features such as a backrest, footrests, heat and massage units as well as built-in storage areas. A backrest and footrests help provide comfortable resting positions in case the user needs to adjust a position so as to read, watch television or sleep. Heat and massage units help relieve either muscle or back pain while storage units serve to provide the users a place to keep their stuff for easy access without having to stand up.
5. Availability of different makes
Lift chairs are available in diverse sizes and designs to provide a wide range to choose from. Hence, you can pick a size that fits individuals of different heights and weights. Besides, they come in various colors and fabric material giving you a range to choose from especially if you mind too much when it comes to matching your home decor. Also, these chairs are made to last for a long time meaning that you do not have to replace them in a short period after use.
Having covered the benefits of a lift chair recliner, we can conclude that it is a worthy investment for loved ones with a problem when it comes to mobility. These chairs save not only time for the caregivers but also the expenses that may arise in case the elderly suffers damage due to much strain.
