Chairs for seniors' residences

Senior living chairs are geriatric chairs designed to provide optimal comfort during prolonged sitting. This makes them a recommended device for seniors with mobility loss who spend a large portion of the day sitting. Geriatric wheelchairs offer features that promote the independence of movement of an older adult who is losing mobility. Many seniors living chair models are reclinable and can be used in the sitting, reclining, or lying position. Geriatric chairs allow seniors to perform many activities without the need to move around or exert significant physical effort. Some models of chairs for seniors’ residences are also equipped with wheels and a carrying handle. These geriatric chairs can be moved from room to room, for example, from the resident’s bedroom to the dining room, to allow the resident to eat with other residents. Finally, various accessories can be added to geriatric chairs to meet the specific needs of the seniors in the senior living facility. Some chairs can also be fitted with a solute rod or folding armrests.

Different models of senior living chairs are suggested based on the senior’s health condition and mobility level. For seniors who are significantly limited in their movement or require frequent care, the suggested chairs are geriatric care chairs. Models available are all the Foster collection which is Foster Patient Recliner, Foster Recliner, Foster Sleep, Foster Patient, Guest and Rocker. These chairs offer features that help caregivers provide the necessary care to residents. For seniors without extensive care and looking for seating that offers long-term comfort, suggested chairs are recliners or bedroom chairs. These geriatric chairs improve seniors’ comfort and independence of mobility in senior living facilities.

The dining room plays a vital role in the lives of residents, and it is essential to choose the right furniture. Several criteria can be considered when choosing chairs for the dining room.

Orthopedic cushions for seniors' residences

Orthopedic cushions are equipment used in senior residences to prevent postural problems and pressure sores in seniors who spend a large part of the day sitting. Prolonged sitting can lead to the development of various postural issues in seniors. Because they are designed to provide increased postural support, orthopedic cushions help reduce the development of these problems in seniors. Prolonged sitting can also cause pressure ulcers in seniors. Pressure ulcers are painful for those who suffer from them, and their treatment requires a great deal of time and effort on the part of caregivers. Because they are designed to dissipate heat and reduce pressure points during prolonged sitting, orthopedic cushions are one way to prevent pressure ulcers in seniors’ residences.

There are two main types of orthopedic cushions available for seniors’ residences: gel cushions and molded foam positioners. Gel cushions are available in two models, the cube gel cushion and the flat gel cushion. Gel cushions are easily adapted to different types of surfaces and can be used with a wide variety of seating, including wheelchairs, rocking chairs, bedroom chairs, and dining chairs. Molded foam positioners are available in two models, the ViscoComfort positioner and the ViscoComfort positioner with integrated gel. The molded foam positioners are designed to provide increased postural support, limit moving vibration, and distribute pressure points. Gel cushions and molded foam positioners are all manufactured in Quebec to high-quality standards. They are available in various thickness options and in several sizes to accommodate all types of seating.
