I love watching TV, so I spend quite a lot of time in my chair – and it used to be OK until I had to get up. After knee surgery that I had last year, getting up was a nightmare! So my children came up with a brilliant idea to give me a Lift Chair as a Christmas gift. I think they didn’t even expect how happy would it make me. Now I can easily get up whenever I want, without calling for help or using my cane. Health Furniture Concepts has lots of different models, mine is Specialty Wall Hugger, and I just love the color and how comfy it is.
