Safety Risks in the Bathroom
As you get older, the bathroom can become one of the most dangerous rooms in your home. Between slick floors and the high threshold of a traditional bathtub or shower, it’s not surprising that 80% of falls in the home happen in the bathroom.
Some of the most common bathroom hazards for seniors include the following:
- Tight spaces, which can be difficult to maneuver
- Scalding water temperatures in the tub or shower
- Inadequate lighting, making it difficult to see
- Wet flooring, which can cause slips
- High shower and tub thresholds, which can cause tripping and falling
By proactively remodeling your bathroom, you can reduce these risks and stay safe.
Aging-in-Place Updates to Consider for Your Bathroom
As your local aging-in-place experts, we are here to help you create a space that feels safe even as your mobility levels continue to change. Here are some aging-in-place updates we recommend for seniors.
Walk-in showers: Reduce the worry of tripping and falling while you bathe by installing a barrier-free shower in your bathroom. With our senior walk-in showers, you can opt for an entry that is flush with the floor so you can easily step inside.
Safety accessories: We offer a variety of safety accessories to help you maintain your independence as you get older. Consider adding grab bars for extra stability, non-slip flooring, or a comfortable seat to your new shower.
When to Consider a Senior Bathroom Remodel
Even if you know you eventually want to age in place, it can sometimes be difficult to decide when to start your bathroom remodel. These are a few signs it’s time to start planning your senior bathroom remodel:
- You are nearing retirement age
- You’re not experiencing mobility restrictions, but you want to be proactive
- You are starting to experience mobility restrictions and you want to prevent an injury
- You are struggling to bathe independently
- Your bathroom is outdated and you’re ready for an update
