The number one thing to consider when buying an outdoor chair is comfort. As mentioned earlier, unfortunately, most garden furniture is cheap and uncomfortable, therefore, spending a little more but getting the perfect chair is worth it.
Although this depends on the chair if possible, a chair which is adjustable is ideal. As some chairs come in different heights or with parts of the chair reclining. This offers extra support for the user.
Whether you’re looking for back support or head support, both can be crucial for an elderly person. Head support is important as it provides somewhere for a rest and helps you sit up.
Easy to use
Finally, in order for this to be a chair which is ideal for elderly people, a chair which offers support to get up and down easily is key. Poor design makes it harder for seniors to grab onto and can result in issues, especially if they are tackling a health condition like arthritis or a slipped disk.
Which garden chairs should I avoid?
When looking for a garden chair for an elderly person it is important to avoid hard plastic chairs, as these provide no support or comfort. You should also look to avoid any chairs that are too low or too high, as these can be difficult when it comes to getting up or sitting down.
