Saturday Soliloquy: A Chair!

I have a new chair!

It’s a Pride VivaLift Recliner. It is sized to fit shorties like me all the way up to 6′-plus. It has infinite setting capability, using a control, so I can put the lumbar support exactly where I need it. It is equipped with a lift motor. I don’t expect to use that a lot right now, but the day is coming when I know I’m going to need it.

I can actually touch the floor with my feet from a fully-seated position! If you’re short like me, you know how exciting that is! Most recliners leave me with my feet dangling six inches or more above the floor, feeling like a little girl sitting in Daddy’s chair 🙂

I could go on and on about how comfortable I am in my new chair. Terry has spent hours online making sure he found exactly what I needed. He takes such good care of me! He and son Mike got it assembled in short order, and I’m absolutely loving the comfort and convenience. It can flatten out completely if I want to sleep in it, but I already have my adjustable mattress, so I’m not seeing using the chair as a bed just yet. I did take a short nap yesterday. The headrest adjusts, too, which is a real plus. Most recliners’ headrests tend to push my head forward. Not comfortable at all.

AND: It is considered a class II medical device, so our insurance will pay for the motor lift components.

As always, there’s a song in my head when I think about the comfort of this chair. Here it is:

    1. I hope you will! There are several varieties. Mine is the “radiance”. but there is one more level that includes a massage feature. We didn’t get that because I already have my adjustable mattress with a massage feature. And if you get the lift, Medicare will pay for those components as long as you get a script from your doctor.

  1. My recliner sleeps just fine. It sees me coming and starts humming a lullaby, or so it seems. It is a hand-me-down from my daughter who rocked her babies in it and found it very comfortable for nursing. They did a lot of studying before they purchased it so I feel very fortunate to have it now. It doesn’t do the fancy stuff yours does but it serves me well. I am so happy for you!
