If you find it difficult to sit down and stand up, you may end up in the same chair all day unless you have someone to help you. Or if you can't get comfortable, you may end up staying in bed. Some people even find they can no longer stay in their own home. Getting the right chair can help keep you independent. This guide gives information about riser recliner chairs, and advice to help you choose and get one.
They come in a variety of shapes, sizes and prices and can cost anything from £350 for a basic model, up to £7,000 for a chair with special features. It's important to try out any chair before you buy. Have a good long sit to make sure it'll be comfortable, and try out any special features that you might need.
