Lounge

Comfort in the lounge is important when mobility is restricted.

All forms of dementia are usually accompanied in the later stages by restricted mobility, so it is important to ensure that all rooms in the home are properly equipped. There are many products available, for example, to improve standards of comfort and safety in the lounge.

One option is high back chairs which don’t just give support and allow the user to sit comfortably, but also make it easier for them to get up from than a normal chair. If the dementia is not too advanced, then an electrically controlled chair which the user can operate safely on their own can offer a wide range of seating positions, with separate operation of the leg rest and back rest for maximum personal comfort. This is especially useful where positioning is important.

To allow the user to eat comfortably at mealtimes or keep objects such as books or pastimes in reach, height adjustable overchair tables are also highly practical.

See also the sections on Safety and Falls Prevention for other products which are suitable to use in the lounge.
