There are various types of raisers to fit armchairs and sofas to increase the height of your chair. This may make it easier for you to get up from the chair and help with your balance.
There are also various chairs that will help you stand mechanically. There are chairs that can just help you up to stand called riser chairs but there are also chairs that recline to help you get comfortable through the day and raise your legs, these are riser recliners.
These types of chairs can be expensive so if you are local to, or able to travel to Dorchester you can visit the Mi-Life Greenwood Centre.
There are a range of chairs at the Mi-Life Independent Living Centre where you can ‘try before you buy’. To arrange a visit and to speak to an Occupational Therapist call 03330030010 or visit http://mylifemycare.com
