Preventing falls in the bathroom is the #1 priority for seniors staying in their home.
Although a fall can occur anywhere, most falls occur at home.
More than one in three seniors over age 65 suffers a fall each year, and most of these falls occur in the bathroom as a result of slippery surfaces.*
Fortunately, you have the power to reduce the risk of fall. Falls in the bathroom can be significantly reduced by:
• Installing a shower or bathtub catered to the needs of seniors • Installing grab bars close to toilets and in showers and bathtubs • Using non-slip mats or treads in shower or bathroom floors • Consider placing a stool or shower chair in the shower stall • Ensure towels, soap and shampoo are easy to reach
Our bathroom accessories were designed to increase your comfort, stability and security in the bathroom.
