A couple of good reasons to have a recliner chair are if you value luxurious comfort during the day or cannot sleep comfortably in a standard bed by night.
One step up from a manual recliner chair is an electric recliner chair with the ability to raise you to a standing position with a remote control.
Some of the electric chairs can move you from an almost prone lying down position to a standing position with no effort required from the user whatsoever, other than pressing a button on the remote control. This is very useful if you have any sort of difficulty moving into a standing position unaided.
Personally I found a recliner chair an absolute godsend after I’d had open heart surgery and was allowed home from the hospital for the first time. I found I was not able to sleep in a regular bed for the first month or so and the recliner chair was, to put it bluntly, an absolute lifesaver, being able to lay back and sleep combined with not having to struggle to get out of the chair was absolutely bliss!
