I’m not the person you asked, but the chair we got for my dad is an Ashley. It has simple controls and he has dementia + poor vision, so it’s a good fit. Won’t recline into zero gravity or anything that fancy. The medical equipment store chairs are more expensive but will recline in far more ways and angles and combinations of footrest and back. But, we were told there is at least a 36 week wait for anything special ordered. LazyBoys are even longer, like 5 months or more. The Ashley was bought off the floor at a local furniture store and cost almost $1000 delivered. The backs come off, similar to LazyBoy, so it’s easier to transport and move from one room to another. We have two cats, one age 18 and one age 10 or so. They have never had any interest in that chair.
