If you or a loved one struggles with mobility because of age or disability, the bathroom can be one of the most difficult areas of the home to tame. With plenty of obstacles and the threat of injury looming, it’s crucial that you make this room as accessible as possible. Here are some products that can help.
If you’re concerned about slips or trips in the bathroom – and they can be common for people with reduced mobility – then non-slip mats are the perfect product to invest in. Consider both mats which stick to the floor around the shower and bath as well as mats which go inside the shower and bath to reduce the risk of slips as much as possible.
For people who really struggle to get themselves in and out of the bath, bath lifts are now widely available. Sitting in a seat which perches on the rim of a bath, this contraption will slowly lower you into the water and then gently raise you out of it again when you’re done.
Having supports to hold onto when in the bathroom can be of great advantage for those with mobility issues. Strategically placing these supports around the room means that no matter where you are, you can reach our for support.
Finally, age means that the dexterity in our hands can worsen pretty significantly and taps can be tricky to master when our hands don’t work as well as they used to. To combat this, products have emerged when help you get more leverage when turning a tap and make the process far less fiddly.
