Everything to Consider When Buying Chair for Senior Living

March 01, 2024

What comes to mind when one thinks about buying a chair? Of course, it will be color, design, and the price... All of these factors are important without any doubt, you need to consider a lot more when buying chairs for seniors.

With increased age, the health of seniors deteriorates, which gives rise to various health problems. Not to mention that seniors also experience pain and discomfort a lot more than young adults. As a result, one also needs to look at the comfort level, safety, and functionality along with other factors to find the right chair for senior living.

In our guide, we will look at everything you need to consider when buying chairs for senior living or a nursing home!


 Safety

We will start with the most important aspect, "safety," first... The chair design itself should be sturdy and stable to ensure it stays intact even after extensive wear and tear.

The durability of the chair arises from the base material used in the frame. If we look at wood, it is a natural element and thus also brings timeless elegance into the equation. However, wood is prone to moisture damage and even attack from termites can cause damage.

The best way to ensure stability in chairs for senior living is to pick metal chairs. Materials such as aluminum or even stainless steel are an ideal choice due to their lightweight and exceptional durability.

The chair design itself should be safe and sound to provide a stable base for the seniors. Ideally, look for chairs that have reinforced legs or those chairs that have passed safety tests. Another way to enhance the stability of the chairs is through the use of non-slip pads or similar materials on the chair legs.

Last but not least, also ensure that the chair has no sharp corners or edges that could lead to injury. Additionally, the surface of the chair itself should be smooth and free from any uneven bits that could cause injury. A simple solution to avoid all these problems is to go with wood grain metal chairs, which feature a smooth surface.

To conclude, the best way to ensure safety is to go with metal chairs with wood grain coating. The design of the chair should also be safe and sound to ensure the safety of the seniors.

Durability and Quality

You need furniture that can last at least a few years in the busy environment of a senior living center. After all, who would want to spend a lot of money on buying chairs for seniors that will need replacement or repair in just a few months? Exactly! So, when you are looking to buy chairs for a senior living center, also look at how durable it is... Once again, the material used in the construction of a chair can play a key role in deciding how durable it will be!

You should go for chairs that are made from metal as they possess a much higher weight-bearing capacity than other materials. The density or the thickness of the metal is also essential as a too-thin material will break down in a few months at best. If you can afford it, pick chairs that are made with 2.0 mm thick metal tubes or higher. At Yumeya, we use the best quality and the right thickness of metal in our chairs so that they can last for years to come.

Yumeya Furniture offers a comprehensive collection of durable chairs made for senior living centers. With a 2.0 mm thick metal frame and a 10-year warranty, you don't have to worry about durability at all.

 

Room Size and Layout

If you need chairs for the dining room, the size and layout requirements will be different. Similarly, if you need chairs for the rooms or the lobby, your layout/size requirements will change as well.

The bottom line is that you should also consider the overall size and layout of the room where the chairs will be placed. If the place has limited space, you could do well with side chairs or those which are built to maximize space. Similarly, you can also opt for a more comfy design that takes more space but promises the highest level of comfort to the seniors.

Ideally, the furniture you choose for a senior living center should feel like it belongs rather than something out of the ordinary. That's the only way to make sure that the furniture and the overall environment of the senior living center feels like home.

 

Comfort Is Important

You don't furniture (chairs) that only looks good but is uncomfortable to use for seniors. The need for a comfortable chair is far greater in seniors as compared to young adults.

From arthritis to back pain to muscle aches, seniors have to deal with a lot of health problems. Amidst all of this, the last thing you would is to aggravate these problems with chair that is not comfortable at all.

That's why it is also essential to look at the cushioning level of the chairs you are buying for senior living. The best option is to pick chairs that come with thick and high density padding, enabling the seniors to experience comfort and calm as they enjoy their favorite activities.

Additionally, you can also find chairs with ergonomic designs these days which promises an even higher degree of comfort while also alleviating pain and discomfort in seniors. In fact, an ergonomic-friendly chair even helps to alleviate the pressure on the back and joints, which promotes good posture.

 

Find Reputable Manufacturer
