Getting Up out of a Chair

  1. Manoeuvre your bum to the edge of the chair, if possible
  2. Bring your feet back as far as possible under the chair. Try to make a habit of sitting on chairs that are not closed in at the front, near the floor and are not too low.
  3. Lean forwards as far as you can with your arms out in front of you
  4. You should now be able to lift yourself up
  5. Don’t get cross with yourself.
