Lift Chairs and the Fountain of Youth

Most everyone has heard the story of the Fountain of Youth. One popular story is of the well know Spanish explorer Juan Ponce de Leon and his quest for the Fountain of Youth. Ponce de Leon sailed with Columbus on his second trip to what was to become the United States of America. Ponce decided to stay in Puerto Rico and became very well known. While Governor he heard many stories of a special place whose waters were said to keep you young. Ponce made it his quest to search for this magical place and while he never found it, he had many adventures along the way and helped to shape history.

Of course everyone knows there is no magical fountain of youth. So when your body starts to show its age, there is no magic potion that will restore your youth. There are, however, many ways to help you live more comfortably and keep your independence. So if you struggle getting up or sitting down a lift chair may be for you. A lift chair works by slowly raising you to a standing position or slowly lowering you to a sitting position. This eliminates a large amount of strain on the body and can make you feel better.

Another advantage of lift chairs is that they can relieve your dependence on your spouse or other loved one. Often as we get old our wife or husband will help take care of us. It is only natural and we would do the same for them if we were able. One of the hardest things for them is getting us in or out of our favorite chair. A lift chair can solve this problem with the push of a button and can literally save their body from undo strain and wear.

While there is no magical cure to old age, there are still many things that you can do to help manage its toll. A Lift Chair can literally restore your independence and save you money because you no longer have to rely on friends, family, or a paid nurse to get around your own home.
