exercise for arthritis

I have arthritis in both knees but I need to do more exercise to get my weight down. The problem is that it is very awkward to get on the floor to do most exercises & I don't swim. Any suggestions?

On TV I saw the lady who teaches exercise in a chair.
Can you dance? That's good exercise. The swimming would be ideal. Some ins co pay gym membership. They have a shallow pool. They exercise but don't swim. I did this in Hawaii.

A stationary bike would be my #1 choice and an elliptical # 2
