Ask any emergency room attendant the leading cause of visits by seniors and they’ll say “falls”. Think about the environment of a bathroom – at night, when wet, getting up and down, stepping out of bathtubs and showers, balancing while putting on clothes and more. What if you could minimize the risk of falls in the bathroom? Not only for safety’s sake but also because everyone deserves to use their bathroom in comfort with dignity.
So, what changes can be made to make seniors safer and more confident in the bathroom? Here are the results of a survey done by asking seniors what changes they would like in their homes so they could “age in place”:
- 79% want bathroom aids such as:
- Grab bars
- Shower benches
- Handheld showerheads
- 80% want non-slip floors
The best part is that you don’t have to search for a company that “might” be able to make these changes or even try to make the improvements yourself. BathMax specializes in safety solutions for seniors and handicapped individuals. When looking at this list, these changes could be completed fairly quickly and without changing the overall aesthetic of your bathroom. When full bathroom remodels are not an option, BathMax can come in and make changes within one day that will still have a lasting impact. How much peace of mind could come from a completed bathroom Safety Diagnosis followed by changes for security and tranquility in the bathroom?
