Care recipient (cr) needs the seat of chair to be slightly raised either to adjust the cr’s proximity to a table top to change the cr’s posture while seated or to firm and raise a seat from which it is difficult to rise

Try: #place a neatly folded blanket on the seat of a chair that has arms a typical blanket folded in eighths will add about two inches to the seat’s height #if helpful add additional blankets until the cr can sit with hips raised slightly higher than knees this position will be easier to rise from than one in which the hips are sunk below the knees while the cr is seated

Materials: Blanket or blankets quantity will vary with need chair with arms
