How easily can you get out of a beanbag chair? That's what I thought!
For a person with joint problems, all low furniture resembles beanbag chairs - low, soft seating that seems to imprison you.
Prior to my first hip replacement, my husband and his friend built a "perch" to which they secured my recliner. I spent many nights in that chair, as it was the only place I managed to get some semblance of rest.
Now, chair lifters are readily available in many stores. Bear in mind, that these only work if you have legs on your chair. The base on that recliner would not have worked with them.
I'm happy to say that with my new hips and my new recliner, I no longer need my "perch".
Do you care to tell us about your favourite "perch"?
