When getting older it becomes more difficult completing everyday tasks, including easily moving around. This means that elderly loved ones may end up spending more time sitting in their chairs or resting in their bed. Making sure these items are comfy becomes increasingly important, as not only will it improve their day to day life, it can also help to prevent issues such as back problems.
We’ve collated our top five chairs that would suit elderly or disabled needs, which also fit a variety of budgets. As always, if your loved one is suffering from back issues due to immobility it’s a good idea to check with their doctor before purchasing a new chair. They may have helpful advice which is tailored to their specific condition and this is something you should bear in mind when purchasing a new chair.
