my surgery will be in June. I was wondering if a lift chair would be a good thing for me to use during my recovery. I don't think I will be able to get in and out of bed will have to sleep in my chair. have any of you used a lift chair?

Hello and thank you for sharing your question.

Having a lift chair will be very useful for you, especially if you have stairs or a shower that is difficult to get in and out of.  In case you don't already have one, I suggest that you also have a part-time caretaker.
