Chairs For Dementia Patients

At Seating Matters, we are extremely proud of the wide range of chairs that we offer for every circumstance and this includes chairs for dementia patients. Anything that you can do for patients to help during this time is great and one of our chairs can really help. Carry on reading to find out more about how our chairs can help dementia patients and the range of chairs we have on offer here at Seating Matters.  

Keeping Those WIth Dementia Comfortable 

If you have patients with dementia, your number one priority will be ensuring that they are kept comfortable as much as possible. One of the key issues that those with dementia face is slipping out of their chairs, however, at Seating Matters you can purchase the absolute best chair for dementia patients that will help to prevent this from happening. 

Many people with dementia struggle with sitting upright and can slip forward in their chair often. This lack of postural support and poor positioning is something that you want to try and prevent as it can cause pressure injuries and even spinal pain. 

Our reclining chairs can help to keep those with dementia in a seated position that is healthy and stops them from sliding forward in their chair. A backrest can also help as those with dementia can tend to suffer from slumping to one side when sitting for long periods of time. A backrest helps to ensure a midline spin position which is much healthier. Furthermore, extra back angles can provide a benefit too as it opens up the hip angle and provides a comfortable position without having to neglect alignment and support.
