Ultimate Guide On High Seat Sofas For Elderly

2022/10/19

The elderly benefit greatly from high-seat sofas in a variety of ways. In addition to being comfortable, carefully selected high sofas minimize their encounters with muscle aches, joint pain, and movement difficulties. Here are some guides that can help you select high-seat sofas for the elderly.


Firmness

So that the elderly person does not sink into the sofa, it must be firm. Soft sofas enable people to burrow into them when sitting if certain joints are sore or restricted. The prevalence of back problems is attributed to soft sofas since they are difficult to get out of, encourage poor posture, and cause neck and shoulder strain in both younger and older people. So a sofa with a firm seat should be considered when buying high-seat sofas for the elderly.


Seat Height

The best seat height for older persons is higher seating on both sofas and armchairs because of how much easier they are to get into and out of. For someone with mobility concerns, a lower seat, such as the kind found in Chesterfield couches, can place too much strain on the knees, ankles, and lower back.

 

Armrests

High-seat sofas for the elderly should also have armrests. The armrests should be high enough for your arms to rest comfortably without requiring you to adjust your shoulders. Test the armrests on armchairs and couches in any store before making a purchase because your shoulders shouldn't be elevated or lowered while utilizing the armrest.


Recliners

Recliners allow you to sit down before adjusting the position of the seat to one that is more comfortable, making them perfect for older persons and those who are less mobile. The rising leg rest of a recliner with a full back and headrest is often controlled by a level on the side or an electronic button that can be pressed. The advantages of a recliner ensure that a person may relax in a comfortable position without experiencing any neck, shoulder, or back strains, as well as some alleviation from their joints and pressure points. Recliners can be a good option when choosing high-seat sofas for the elderly.

 

Technique

For some who are less mobile, even sitting down may need to be modified. Things can be made a little easier by just resting the arms firmly on the armrests, sliding toward the edge of the seat, and lifting slowly and softly out of a chair by gently pushing up with the arms. If you're using walking assistance, don't approach it since it can shift, move, or be uneven on the floor, which could cause you to trip and fall. When you are in a secure environment, only use your walking aid.


Fabric

In order to prevent stains and soiling, fabrics in senior and assisted living facilities must be treated. To reduce and prevent surface contamination, choose a fabric that is smooth, easy to maintain and clean, and free of pores.
