As you continue living in your home, there will be areas of the home that will need to be remodeled and upgraded. Something that you will find as you engage in the process is that your needs and expectations have changed. There is a need for bathrooms to be updated and updated in such a way as to make them safe and reliable for people who plan to age in place.
Safe Options for Your Bathroom Remodel
Seniors can have a hard time stepping into a shower or tub. There are many ways to enhance the bathroom and make it user-friendly for people of all ages. One option is to install a curbless shower or a walk-in tub with a door with a watertight seal. These options allow anyone to enjoy safety while taking a bath or shower. If you opt for a tub with jets, you will find a bonus of stress reduction and relaxation.
More Minor Amenities That Are Essential for a Safe Bathroom Remodel
Once you have the tub or shower installed, you will need to think through the minor amenities to make the bathroom safe. Seniors sometimes have a hard time turning rugged handles. You may want to think about installing faucets that are easy for seniors to operate. They come in all shapes and fashions. We also recommend installing a shower seat as part of your bath remodel. These can be permanently built-in or you can also find them in aftermarket settings including a local hardware or medical supply store. You may also want to think about installing grab bars that can be used to dry towels and provide a handle for people to grab in case of a stumble. A non-slip surface can often be installed to help reduce the risk of falling or slipping.
