What Helps Elderly People Shower?
If your elderly loved one is looking to maintain his or her independence at home, consider adding or improving bathroom safety measures. Relatively small changes can significantly enhance accessibility and help your loved one shower more safely. For example, try:
- Investing in a no-threshold (roll-in) shower with no barriers to step over
- Installing grab bars or hand rails inside the shower
- Adding a shower seat
- Making sure materials are low maintenance and easy to clean
Other ways to increase bathroom safety include:
- Adding non-slip flooring
- Improving lighting
- Removing throw rugs and unnecessary décor
- Lowering light or shower controls, if necessary
Bathroom ideas, like those listed above, can improve an elderly person’s quality of life. While some of these additions are simple, the core ways of improving safety and accessibility require the help of a bathroom remodel contractor. With a professional bathroom renovation, the shower space can be customized to fit your elderly loved one’s exact preferences and needs.
Bathroom Safety Solutions for Seniors
For a bathroom remodel that will allow your elderly loved one to bathe comfortably and maintain their independence, turn to BathWraps. We are pleased to offer tubs, showers, and bathroom accessories that can help seniors and individuals with physical disabilities enjoy a safer bathing experience. Our selection includes roll-in showers, low-threshold showers, quick-drain tubs, seating, grab bars, and more that can be customized down to the last detail. Plus, all of our products are custom-crafted from premium, non-porous acrylic that won’t crack, chip, or fade. They’re also a breeze to keep clean and are infused with Silver Shield™ Anti-Microbial Protection to prevent mold and mildew growth. This makes the material remarkably easy to maintain with little more than a simple wipe-down, so you or your loved one won’t have to worry about bending over to scrub any grout lines or use harsh chemicals.
Other benefits of choosing BathWraps for bathroom safety-enhancing solutions are our sensible pricing and convenience. Our tubs and showers are surprisingly affordable and can be installed in as little as one day! This means your loved one won’t have to hassle with living in a messy construction zone for several days or even weeks, and can start enjoying their new shower sooner than with a traditional bathroom remodel.
A Safe and Attractive Option
A safe shower for seniors shouldn’t look or feel clinical. When you choose BathWraps as your bathroom remodel contractor, you can customize your new shower with more than just safety and accessibility features. We offer a wide array of options for tile colors, patterns, and storage accessories, so the new shower at your home can be personalized to suit your aesthetic preferences as well as the safety needs of the individuals within your home. Walk-in showers are becoming increasingly popular for more than just their increased safety over other options—they’re also a sleek, modern alternative to an outdated tub.
