Mum’s finally home after her hip replacement. We have set up a chair for her at home which the Occy Health folk raised to 20 inches for her but she’s not happy so I’m now sourcing a rise and recline chair.
She was horrified by the prospect of paying £1700 odd for one but we noticed Argos has several more reasonably priced.
Can anyone advise if they are any good or is it false economy? The seat on the one I have my eye on is 18 inch rather than the 20 inch they’ve raised hers to but she’s already chuntering that it’s too high. Would the 2 inch difference matter if the chair’s going to rise anyway?
Does she see a OT or not? If so, show them pictures of the chair and then ask for their advice. They may have some recommendations. Do not do anything yet. The Disabled Living Foundation may also have special chairs you can use at home. Or you can order a rise and recliner chair from this company via their website. Call the occupational therapist tomorrow.
