Safe and Comfortable Dining Chairs for Elderly Customers

2023/05/17

As the world becomes more accessible to seniors in terms of dining, safety is still a priority. Getting the right dining chairs can make aspects of dining more accessible for elderly customers. Safe and comfortable dining chairs should be designed with special attention to safety measures, such as the right seat height and lumbar support. With so many different types of dining chairs available, however, it can be difficult to know what specific factors make chairs safe and easy for the elderly to use. In this article, we will cover everything you need to know about safe and comfortable dining chairs for elderly customers.


1. Seat Height


One of the most crucial factors in designing comfortable dining chairs for the elderly is the seat height. To reduce the risk of falls for seniors, it is essential that chairs are designed to the right height. A chair that is too low can lead to straining of the knees, hips, and back as the user tries to stand up or sit down. Whereas a chair that is too high can mean that the feet do not touch the floor, and this can also cause discomfort and instability.


The ideal height for a dining chair for the elderly should be between 16 to 20 inches. Some chairs even come with adjustable seats which are perfect for elderly customers who find it difficult to match the height of traditional chairs.


2. Stability


Another important quality for dining chairs for the elderly is stability. Dining chairs should have a sturdy base that will support elderly customers as they move in and out of the seat. Chairs that have a broad base are considered more stable than those with narrow bases. Furthermore, chairs designed with legs that can be adjusted in height can be more stable as well.


3. Safety features


Dining chairs that come with extra safety features are another alternative. Some dining chair brands offer chairs that are made from materials that reduce the risk of slipping off the seat. Others are designed with armrests to help prevent falls. In addition, if an elderly customer has suffered from a physical ailment or challenging condition, it is essential to get a dining chair that caters specifically to that problem.


4. Lumbar Support


Lumbar support is critical in keeping seniors comfortable as they eat. As we age, our spinal discs' height tends to decrease, leading to back pain. A dining chair that has lumbar support can improve senior's posture keeping the back aligned leading to less pressure on the back bones. Chairs that are well-designed to have lumbar support are e great option for seniors who are dealing with back pain.


5. Comfort


Lastly, chairs must also be comfortable. Whether it's the seat cushion, the backrest, or the armrest, comfort should be a priority. Elderly customers have sensitive skin, and poorly designed chairs can cause pressure ulcers. The chairs' seat must have ample padding to make sure that the customers will not undergo any discomfort related to sitting. At the same time, the chairs' design should be appealing and pleasant to the users' eyes, making them an excellent option for elderly customers who consider aesthetics all the same.


In summary, dining chairs designed explicitly for elderly customers should prioritize factors such as seat height, stability, safety features, lumbar support, and comfort. These chairs are crucial in ensuring that elderly customers have safe, comfortable, and enjoyable experiences while dining. As an establishment, investing in safe and comfortable dining chairs for the elderly is a gesture of respect and care for your customers.
