Bath & Shower Safety
Getting in and out of the bath or shower can be tricky and even dangerous. By adding a few bath safety elements, you can create a safer, more comfortable environment. Start with properly placed grab bars in the bathtub, shower and toilet areas. They help with balance and can supply just the right amount of support. Grab bars may be installed vertically, horizontally and even diagonally. Most can be installed with just a few tools. We also feature no-drill grab bars for easy installation.
If difficulty standing up in the shower is a concern, consider a shower chair. Shower chairs with wheels are simple: roll the chair into the shower stall and lock the wheels to allow users to remain seated comfortably and safely while taking a shower. Another option to consider is a teak shower chair. Teak shower chairs may be portable or permanently affixed in place. Teak is naturally water, mold and mildew resistant, so it’s perfect for any wet space. For improved access to the shower while maintaining a seated position, install a handheld or adjustable shower head. This small, simple update can make a huge difference in convenience and ease of showering.
Make sure you have everything you need to prevent slips and falls inside and out of the tub or shower. In the shower, add a rubber bathtub mat to secure your footing. When you step out of the shower, there’s nothing like resting your feet on a soft, comfy bath mat. Non-slip bath mats not only feel good underfoot, but the skid-resistant backing stays firmly in place and keeps the mat – and you – from slipping. Shop our large selection of bath mats in the styles, colors and sizes you’re looking for.
A visit to the restroom can be a source of stress for seniors and people with mobility issues. Because they’re usually alone in the bathroom, this is a time when accidents can happen. Take steps to help prevent those mishaps, starting with the right toilet and toilet seat. We offer a large selection of handicap toilets. These ADA-compliant toilets are higher, usually 17-19 inches off the floor, including the seat. Since the seat height’s about 2 inches higher than standard toilets, sitting down and standing up from the toilet is made easier for most adults.
Don’t want to replace the whole toilet? Choose a raised or handicap toilet seat. These elevated seats can be round or elongated and generally provide an extra 2 to 6 inches of lift, depending on your specific needs. Most of these toilet seat risers are not permanently affixed to the toilet. That makes them easier to clean and remove when not in use. For optimal comfort, consider adding a heated toilet seat. Many feature a comfortable multi-setting warming seat and a night light, to illuminate the bathroom with a soft glow.
