The Shower and Bathtub
Rubber suction mats are critical for both the shower and the tub. Ensure that they are washed regularly and any build up of soap or other cleaning products are frequently removed. In addition to these, you should also install grip bars and a bathtub rail at heights that are suitable for the individual who will be using the bathroom. Place all towels, bath products and appliances within arm’s reach and make sure they are easy to locate.
All of these measures are simple and inexpensive yet they potentially allow a senior citizen to maintain their independence; something that is invaluable.
