Many people find themselves struggling with routine tasks as they get older. Luckily, our team at Home Remedy Houston comprises Certified Aging-in-Place specialists that can provide solutions to ensure our aging customers can stay in their own homes safely and securely.
Some of our more mature family members find getting into a bathtub harder. Sitting on the edge of the tub, splashing a little bit of water on themselves to bathe should not be an option. There are different aging-in-place solutions to remedy to that situation:
- Installing a U-step, allowing seniors to get in and out of their tub with ease.
- Replacing the showerhead with a hand-held flexible shower head.
Another issue we have confronted is how many seniors in need of a shower seat choose to use a regular plastic chair in their shower. This can be a safety hazard as plastic chairs aren’t stable on the tub surface causing seniors to possibly slip and injure themselves.
Another unsafe idea is to use one’s towel bar as a grab bar. Those are not stable and rigid enough to support a person’s weight. The proper aging-in-place solution to this issue would be to have a proper grab bar installed allowing the person to get in and out of the tub/shower safely.
Other aging-in-place tips for your bathroom include installing a pedestal sink for more convenience or replacing your toilet with one with a higher seat.
