What would be the ideal gift for your grandparents? Let’s introduce you to something we think they’ll enjoy.
A recliner is any chair/armchair/sofa that reclines when the person sitting on it lowers the back of the chair and raises it from the front. Recliners also have a backrest that can be tilted towards the back along with a footrest that can be extended, either automatically or manually through a lever on the side. Another word for recliner is a lounger. Some recliners can be reclined far enough to accommodate a comfortable sleeping position.
Recliners these days are far more advanced and customizable. They come with lumbar support, adjustable headrests, and independent footstools if one isn’t attached to it already. These independent footstools are adjustable with the angle and weight of the occupant’s legs for maximum comfort. Features like massages, vibrations and heat have been added to the modern recliners for an even relaxing experience. Certain models of recliners are wheelchair accessible and also have a lift option.
This brings us to recliners being the best present for your grandparents. A recliner is the perfect gift for the elderly in the family. Grandparents often have difficulty getting up and changing positions. This is an excellent solution that allows the elderly to lie down, sit and change positions easily. Since the features in a recliner are customizable, that makes it even easier for the elderly to adjust it according to their own preferences for greater comfort.
The elderly often face difficulty with movement, especially that of getting and sitting down. Sometimes their chair is too low, at other times the inability of the conventional chairs to recline and adjust makes it difficult for the elderly to rest as they please. This is where the right choice for furniture for the elderly comes into play. Have you ever considered buying this for your grandparents? This would not only be a great source of physical comfort and relief but will also improve mobility for the elderly.
Nowadays, a new feature has been added to the recliner; a lift chair. It is operated and controlled electronically through a remote control. What a lift chair does is power an electric motor to control the lifting and recliner movement of an armchair. They are an amazing option since they not only make getting in and out of the chair easily but also have an added reclining functionality. All this can be done with a simple push of a button.
Recliners also have built in trays and tables that can be used by the elderly for eating during meals. They can simply place their food on the trays/tables and eat with comfort and ease. Recliners are a good way of promoting independence among the elderly since it gives them more control of their movements with far greater ease. This is one present that has long term benefits which can be reaped by your grandparents in the years to come. So go out and get this present for your grandparents because their comfort is worth it!
