Bath Safety Tidbit



Keeping things tidy is perhaps the most convenient way to help our seniors stay away from bathroom falls. Generally, bathrooms are already cramped spaces, and extra mess can make it hard to navigate the space, and the chances of tripping over something can increase.


To make your bathroom well-lit, incorporate different lights in different places, such as next to the sink, mirror, shower, and the bathroom entrance. It helps avoid falls and enhances visual perception.


Grab bars or bathroom safety bars are attached to the wall using metal studs or suction cups. Grab bars support a person's full weight and help them reach the shower safely.


Standing for a long time is often difficult for older adults. Using shower chairs, preferably with rubber leg tips, helps them enjoy longer and more soothing baths. Shower benches have various features and offer effective bath safety.


Bathtubs and showers are the most fall-prone areas due to the slipperiness of soap and water. Use anti-skid mats to get in and out of the shower, or place them at the bathroom entrance.
