This is my first post. Since my husband is still waiting for an official diagnosis (we are seeing a specialist at UCSF tomorrow after a 6 month wait- but from my research, he seems to have all the symptoms of PSP) I've hesitated but I could use some help.
He is still somewhat active, moving around our home with a walker or a cane. He does fall frequently and it seems one major cause is his rising from his chair. He spends his day in a ridged chair with armrests but it's on a hardwood floor so it sometimes slips out from under him. Of course, all our area rugs are gone because they are also hazards. I was hoping to find a heavy chair that swivels (no rocking) so he can turn 45degrees from his desk computer to the TV. We looked at the chairs that lift you up but he is so impulsive he doesn't wait to be in position before he attempts to stand. It doesn't swivel anyway. Has anyone found a chair that is somewhat safe and easier to lift from?
