How to get prepared for winter

« Blog

Here at Countrywide Mobility, we care most about your comfort and ensuring you can maintain as much independence as possible, especially as we get prepared for this winter season. A great way to preserve your independence at home is to use a rise and recline chair, a stairlift or get a specialist adjustable bed. So, we at Countrywide are going to run through how these will benefit you during this winter period.

Rise and recline chairs

rise and recline chairsA common problem among our customer base is difficulty of getting into and out of various seating options. To maximise your comfort, we recommend a bespoke, made-to-measure rise and recline chair, for a couple of reasons:

Reducing pressure on your joints – Due to the bespoke nature of the rise and recline chairs we stock here at Countrywide Mobility, we can fit a chair exactly to your needs. Meaning, with a chair that fits right, it can relieve pressures on your joints and posterior pain.

Standing and sitting without pain – Rise and recline chairs allow for their users to stand and sit without pain or struggle, allowing users to remain independent at home for longer.

If you’re looking to purchase a rise and recline chair for yourself or a loved one, you can take a look at some of our stock online here. Alternatively, you can call us on 01905 29950 or visit us at our shop in Worcester. 


We supply and install a variety of stairlifts in Worcestershire and surrounding counties. All of our stairlifts come with a 12-month manufacturer’s warranty with optional warranty extensions and in most cases are fitted within a couple of hours. Used every day, the stairs are an essential part of your home and are often impossible to avoid, so what are some of the benefits of getting a stairlift to combat this problem?

Peace of mind – Having the ability to access a stairlift is a much safer way to move up and down the stairs in your home, especially if you have reduced stability or an injury.

Bespoke stairlifts - A bespoke, curved stairlift can accommodate different designs of staircases, including half- or quarter-landings, meaning we can provide a stairlift for nearly any home.

These are just a few of the reasons why a stairlift in your home can help to keep you independent, take a look at a few of the FAQs of stairlifts here. Alternatively, you can call us in-store on 01905 29950 or visit us at our shop in Worcester to find out more about stairlifts. 


Adjustable beds

We supply Adjustable Profiling Beds & Mattresses that are ideal for making you more comfortable in your own home. These beds make life more accessible to those who are less able, through features such as raising and lowering, and providing different ergonomically-suited resting angles to keep you as comfortable as possible. Here are a few reasons why they could help you this winter and are worth considering…

Find a comfortable resting and sleeping position – It can be hard to find a comfortable sleeping or resting position in a regular bed, especially if you’re in pain. Here at Countrywide, we can provide an electric bed that will support you in any position you feel comfortable in, whether that be upright or lying flat to sleep.

Boost circulation – If you don’t have the ability to move around as much anymore then poor circulation can become an issue, especially as your older age creeps in. Our beds can aid better circulation by being able to elevate the legs to a comfortable height.

Improve mobility – Having a height-adjustable bed allows the user to easily get out of bed, at a height that suits them. The variable height also helps if moving to and from a wheelchair by setting the bed at exactly the right level.
