Fool Proof Fall Proofing Tips
Falling down stairs is one of the leading causes of injury among 50+ seniors and the elderly, and the other room where most falls occur is in the bathroom. With periodic slick floors, slippery showers and moisture all around, bathrooms can be a dangerous place. However, the bathroom can be made much safer and accessible with the right assistive technology and home modification accessibility upgrades.
Bathroom Fall Prevention
Most bathrooms are poorly designed for the elderly or those who are mobility impaired. Space is limited and most homes come with a shower/bathtub combo which requires stepping over the side of the tub. All of these factors make the bathroom potentially unsafe. Here are some ways to help lower the danger.
- Walk-In Bathtubs: For those who cannot stand for long periods, the walk-in bathtub allows easy access to bathing
- Roll-In Showers: These showers not only have easier access but are designed to be used while safely seated, with space for a caregiver as needed
- Grab Bars: Strategically installed around the bathroom to give a hand-hold, and can be used to lift oneself
- Safety Lights: Bathrooms get steamy which can disorient the elderly. Backlit LED lights help keep a person oriented and safe.
