At Woodbridge Shower & Bath, we understand that style and bathroom designs for elderly folks and seniors go hand-in-hand! That is why we specialize in installing accessories and other features that improve mobility and bath safety for elderly loved ones who aim to regain their bathing independence. Our goal is to make your bathroom a comfortable and relaxing space again.
Senior Bathroom Designs
On an annual basis, about one-third of all people over the age of 65 will experience a frightening fall. Poor bathroom designs for elderly people are one of the top causes of these falls. We can certainly understand why this might lead you or a beloved family member to avoid bathing altogether! That is why we offer senior friendly bathroom products to help them regain their independence.
10 Options for Senior-Friendly Bathrooms:
Install grab bars and safety rails
One of the most important things you can do to make your bathroom more senior-friendly is to install grab bars and safety rails. These will help your loved one to get in and out of the bathtub or shower safely, and will also provide support if they should happen to slip. Invest in a walk-in tub or walk-in shower. These senior-friendly bathtubs and showers are designed with safety in mind, and will greatly reduce the risk of falls.
Use a shower chair or bath seat
If your loved one is having difficulty standing for long periods of time, a shower chair or bath seat can be a lifesaver. These devices allow them to sit down while they bathe, and make it much easier to wash difficult-to-reach areas.
Get a hand-held shower head
A handheld shower head can be a great addition to any senior-friendly bathroom. These devices allow your loved one to bathe without having to stand, and make it much easier to wash difficult-to-reach areas.
Use a nonslip bath mat
If your loved one is at risk of falling in the bathroom, a nonslip bath mat is a must-have. These mats provide traction and stability and can help to prevent dangerous falls.
Install a raised toilet seat
For seniors who have difficulty bending or sitting, a raised toilet seat can be a godsend. These seats make it much easier to use the toilet and can help to prevent dangerous falls.
Use a long-handled bath brush
For seniors who have difficulty bending or reaching, a long-handled bath brush can be a great addition to their bathing routine. These brushes allow your loved one to reach all parts of their body without having to strain and can help to prevent dangerous falls.
Add a shower stool
A shower stool can be a great addition to any senior-friendly bathroom. These stools provide a place to sit while showering and make it much easier to wash difficult-to-reach areas.
Get a bathtub transfer bench
For seniors who have difficulty getting in and out of the bathtub, a transfer bench can be a lifesaver. These benches allow your loved one to safely transfer from their wheelchair to the tub, and make bathing much easier.
Use a handheld shower hose
A handheld shower hose is a great addition to any senior-friendly bathroom. These hoses allow your loved one to bathe without having to stand, and make it much easier to wash difficult-to-reach areas.
Get a walk-in tub or walk-in shower
A walk-in tub or doorless walk-in shower is the ultimate senior-friendly bathroom solution. These tubs and showers are designed with safety in mind, and will greatly reduce the risk of falls.
