Helpful Products Improve Bathroom Safety for Seniors and others with Limited Abilities
The bathroom is an especially dangerous place for seniors, and for those with limited abilities – hard surfaces, small spaces, lots of corners and edges, and slippery water – all contribute to accidents and falls in the home.
Bath safety products make it easier for older adults and mobility impaired individuals to take care of everyday needs, reduce the risk of falls, and help them remain as independent as possible for as long as possible.
For seniors, having the confidence to safely perform personal tasks, like using the toilet or bathing, boosts their self-esteem, and improves their outlook on life. And increased safety means less worrying for them and their loved ones.
