One of the biggest challenges for older adults and those with disabilities who want to not only remain in their own homes but also retain their independence is bathing. No grown adult relishes the thought of having to ask for assistance with their basic hygiene needs, but at the same time, there are many dangers associated with getting in and out of a bathtub or shower, which means some support is essential. Studies indicate that around 80% of falls for people over the age of 65 happen in the bathroom. However, with the help of a few bathroom safety features and products, we can help to create a safe bathing experience that returns independence to the individual, allowing them to age with dignity safely in their own home.
