If you are an individual who has issues standing from a seated position, has limited mobility, or requires the assistance of a nurse or other aide to stand, then you should keep reading about the benefits of a lifting recliner and how to get your own.
Why Choose a Lifting Recliner?
Lifting recliners allow you to safely and comfortably and sit and stand. A lifting recliner may allow a person to stay home longer rather than having to live in an assisted living or nursing facility. A lift chair uses a lifting mechanism that the user can control with a hand remote. These lifting recliners gently lift you into a standing position from a seated position. When you are ready to sit or recline, you simply stand in front of the lifting recliner and it will gently place you in a seated position once more. Get tips on how to choose your next lifting recliner.

Lifting Recliners Medicaid Coverage
Medicaid may cover the cost of a lift chair in many states. Each state varies in its requirements for eligibility. The lift chair may be covered because it may be classified as durable medical equipment. In addition, your Medicaid coverage may also pay for any repairs that may be required during the lifetime of the chair. Speak with your doctor about possibly obtaining medical documentation outlining your need for a lifting chair. Speak with your local Medicaid office. You will be asked to provide documentation to see if you are eligible for Medicaid coverage within your state that would help you pay for a lift chair of your own.
