I cam across this site as I was browsing the internet, and I was very impressed!  I work for a company that sells furniture (as you can tell) and I want to compliment the builders of this website!  Great Job guys!

Appropriate Furniture for Assisted Living Whenit comes to assisted living, independence is key. While this may seemcontradictory, more and more studies are showing that minimalassistance is really the best way to help elderly people. When anelderly person is placed in assisted living care, it is crucial thatthey feel immersed in a social environment containing all the comfortsof home. Therefore, the types of furniture that are placed within anassisted living center can greatly impact a person’s life.

How can a piece of furniture make a difference?

In most cases, assisted living staff will allow a person to functionon their own as much as possible, which means observing as a residentmoves around a care home. In order to maintain balance, many peoplewill grab a hold of a piece of furniture in order to stand up and sitdown. Likewise, it is important that the furniture be designedcorrectly in order to maintain proper posture.

Keeping in mind independence and mobility, most assisted livinghomes choose to place numerous chairs within each room as opposed toother types of furniture.

It is recommended that chairs are designed in an upright fashion (as opposed to a sloping chair) in order to help a resident rise from a seated position. Additionally, chair arms must extend fully so that residents can make full use of their own abilities.

Also, any piece of furniture within an assisted living home must not splinter or crack(in order to keep residents safe). Although assisted living homes tendto take extra precautions when it comes to selecting furniture, thesame basic furniture design rules apply to any senior environment.

Whether you are a caretaker, or a senior citizen looking to purchase ideal furniture, the type of furniture chosen is important.

Remember to select only those products that are:

However, whenthe right furniture is arranged, seniors will be able to move aroundany home with ease … and isn’t that the way that life should be?  Assisted Living Furniture by Poly-Wood
