    My sister and I want to get my dad an easy chair for his 70th birthday. I know there are a lot of different brands out there. Don't even know where to begin looking. We'd like to get one that both reclines and can assist him in standing up as the years progress. $1000 a fair budget for one?

    I bought one for a friends mother and she loves it. Stay away from the leather or slick cloth varieties. A good one can be had for $650

    Make sure it gets unplugged when young grandchildren will be around it.

    Don't buy a Lay-Z-Boy! They are over priced, mechanisms are second rate and the company has dubious practices as it relates to the personal information they get from you at time of purchase.

    Why stay away from leather? Top Grain?

    Too easy to slide off. The friction is good for older folks.
