Bath safety accessories not just prevent slip and fall accidents, but they also give users more independence, freedom, and above all, privacy since they can bathe themselves and use the toilet with no or little assistance from other people.
Contrary to popular belief, you don’t have to spend a fortune to make your bathroom accessible to seniors, wheelchair users, and people with mobility issues. For instance, simply installing grab bars next to the toilet, bath, and shower can significantly reduce the risk of slip and fall accidents.
A raised toilet seat is another must-have bath safety accessory, especially for people who find it difficult to bend down and get up. This accessory is easy to install and is way cheaper than installing a new toilet with more height, which on average costs $200-$450.
To further make your bathroom safer, consider using a bath chair that provides much-needed stability for elders and people with mobility issues. Aside from preventing falls, it also promotes a comfortable position during shower.
At HealthQuest, we make sure that every bath safety accessory is ergonomically correct, which prevents accidents and provides ongoing comfort even when the body is in a single position for an extended period.
