It is great news that nowadays, our elders are living a lot longer than before. Our senior citizens would be able to enjoy life more and probably need to remodel their bathrooms to ensure that they would be comfortable in it and to ensure that the bathroom is safe to use. We have to figure out how to provide the best safety for the bathrooms of senior citizens.
Everyone just loves to take shower baths, the senior people also likes it. But for many senior citizens it’s very difficult to get into the bath tubs. If you are using wheelchair, it’s very tough to get in the normal tubs, so a tub with seat will be very useful. And this ensures more safety also along with easiness.
How do these elders going be able to use the bathroom with regular toilets? They also need to use a different toilet. They need a toilet wherein they would not have much difficulty in sitting down and getting up from it. These kinds of toilets are usually higher than the regular toilets. They pretty much look like chairs.
I suggest you to include the grab bars in your bathroom. They provide you support and also help you to maintain balance. So, put them in important areas. Put one grab bar near toilet. Many people feel slippery in shower, so put one grab bar in the shower also. You can easily step out or in using this grab bar.
In case, if you are using a wheelchair or a walker, a regular bathroom door will be small for the wheelchair. So, replace it with a bigger door and make sure that you can go through them. Also make sure that your bathroom flooring is even to avoid tripping of the wheelchair.
