Bathroom Safety for Louisville Seniors
Bathroom safety is not an option but a must for all. This is especially true for the elderly who have health or mobility issues. Even seniors in good health can risk delayed recovery from accidents due to their age. As such, bathroom renovations are essential to make the area safer for seniors by installing safety features. Residents of Louisville, KY can call Tom Drexler Plumbing for bathroom renovation projects to make bath areas safer for the elderly.
Installing bathroom safety features for seniors
With rising awareness about bathroom safety for seniors, there is a greater availability of safety products in the market. Use of grab bars in the bathroom and shower areas can help seniors navigate the area independently. Use grab bars with non-slip materials. Grip surfaces are better than glossy metal finishes in terms of safety issues. Other features to add for greater bathroom safety are shower chairs, bath benches or better still, a walk-in tub. It is also a good idea to use rubber mats that reduce instances of slips and falls.
Touchless faucets, low basins, elevated or raised toilet seats and easy access to toiletries also increase bathroom safety for seniors. Leaving the bathroom light on at night, use of outdoor swinging bathroom doors and regular cleaning the grime from bathroom floors are additional safety measures for seniors. It is easy to install bathroom safety features with simple bathroom renovations. It is a good idea to call an expert to evaluate the bathroom size and your unique needs for perfect bathroom renovations.
