4 Ways to Keep Your Bathroom Safe With Bath Safety Equipment, Lincoln, Nebraska

Whether you or a loved one has a mobility issue, bath safety equipment is key to creating a bathroom that doesn't pose a risk for potential slips or falls. But what equipment is best to install for your needs? Here are just a few popular ways to ensure your bathroom stays safe.

Bath Safety Equipment Your Home Needs

1. Shower Chairs

When you have difficulty standing up, a shower chair can provide a safe space to sit down. This seat only helps prevent slips and falls when sitting, but it allows you to relax without having to convert a traditional shower into a tub.

2. Raised Toilet Seats

Getting on and off the toilet when you have mobility issues can pose a huge risk for falls. Fortunately, raised seats are simple to install and reduce the distance traveled between a sitting and standing position.

3. Handheld Showerheads

4. Grab Bars

Grab bars can be installed throughout a bathroom for optimal safety — on the sides of a toilet, by the sink, and at the opening of a shower and tub. Avoid falls by having this bath safety equipment placed in various spots so whoever is in the bathroom always has access to extra stability.
