Brother can you spare a chair?

One of the things we learned on my home visit last Thursday is that I own no suitable chairs. None. Zilch. Zero.

Suitable in this context meaning

  1. with armrests sturdy enough to help one get in and out
  2. with a seat high enough to keep me from bending more than 90°at the waist-------- i.e. at lease 22 inches.
Basically, chairs like the one on the right (though solid wood, sans upholstery, would suit me just as well.)

Astute observers may be thinking no way that chair seat's 22+ inches off the floor. And they would be correct. It's mostly there to provide an example of the sort of chair I need.

But I also suspect that chairs that actually meet requirement #2 are hard to find. So I have a workaround: I have some bed risers, which turned out not to be useful for my bed, but would certainly prove sufficient to increase the seat height of any otherwise suitable chair.

So, to cut to the chase, does anyone have one or more such chairs they'd be willing to lend me for a month?

Thanks in advance!
