    These chairs would be very helpful for some of my elderly relatives. Do they come with foot stools too? They would like that. Even if not, though, they can always use their own stool — the chair looks very comfortable by itself.

      Hi Ben,

      These chairs are one unit and do not come with foot stools, but you do not need one. The chairs recline and your feet will be off the ground. Also, the purpose of a lift chair, is to “lift” you off the chair and meet up when you want to sit down.
