CareCo High Back Chairs and Their Benefits

We’re proud of our record for selling high-quality rise recliner chairs. They have their benefits but we realise that these are not for everybody. Some people need much more support for their back than a typical riser or rise recliner chair can provide. One great alternative is a CareCo high back chair. We have a large range of this type of chair suiting all aesthetic preferences, designs and budgets.

Benefits of High Back Chairs

Why would you choose a CareCo high back chair over any other type of chair? They have specific uses, but also a matter of personal preference.

  • High back chairs offer better support for the head, neck and shoulders than other types of chair
  • They are better for the back, from the base of the neck all the way down to the lumbar (an area often neglected in terms of support)
  • Some people feel they are simply more comfortable than armchairs or rise recliners, offering ergonomic design for a more comfortable and relaxing approach to seating
  • Most have adjustable features – usually the legs for extra height for people with back problems

High Back Oakham Chair

The first CareCo high back chair in our range is this popular budget model. It’s sturdy with height-adjustable legs, making it an easy model to use for people with mobility issues. If you struggle to sit down and don’t want a chair that sits too low because of your mobility, this would be a great entry-level model. If it’s lumbar support you need, this model has extra padding for your back. At present, the Oakham is available only in brown. It also comes in a variation with wings on the backrest for extra head and neck support for people prone to falling asleep in a chair.

Longfield Lounge High Seat ChairLongfield Lounge Chair

Simple and unassuming, we like the Longfield CareCo high back chair for its flexibility. It makes a great dining chair but with more support than you might expect. Like the Oakham chair, it is height adjustable, making it easier to stand and sit. It has superior lumbar support and comfortable armrests for a relaxing evening watching the television, reading the newspaper or generally relaxing. The Longfield is available in three colours:  blue, brown and green. It won’t look out of place in any room in your home but will probably be most at home in your lounge.

Barkby Bariatric Chair

The range of CareCo high back chairs offers you real choice. Designed for bariatric patients but suitable for almost anyone, the Barkby is one of the sturdiest designs we have. It’s wider than other types and can cope with a maximum user weight of 40 stone. The covering fabric is wipe-clean vinyl that won’t stain as easily as fabric or scratch without treatment like leather will. It’s height adjustable and comes in just one colour at present – brown. As with the Oakham, you have the option of a wing back chair for people prone to falling asleep while sitting.

Breydon Wing Chair

The Breydon is at the top of the range of CareCo high back chairs and one of our favourites. It’s simply one of the sturdiest that we have. Not only does it offer great lumbar support, the high back is contoured for a natural back shape. Chunky arms offer great hand support and firm grip. For people who need CareCo pressure relief devices, it has a removable cushion. That’s customisation you don’t get on most high back chairs. As the frame is solid beech, you can rest assured of superior support from this chair and a long life.
