Grab Bars and Bathroom Safety Solutions for Your Tub or Shower

Avoid falling in the bathtub or shower by installing grab bars and non-slip floors for greater traction. When you consider the slippery nature of bathroom surfaces, the dangers of scalding water, and the risk of drowning, the bathroom has the potential to be a hazardous place. You can’t eliminate all the risks, but you can make your bathroom safer with a few easy steps. Here are a few safety tips for your bathroom.

1.            Don’t install glossy tiles on bathroom floors; they can be slippery when wet. Grout lines increase traction, so smaller floor tile is usually best because you have more grout. There are also acrylic tub and shower systems made with a nonslip surfaces, making them a safer bathing option.

2.            Having grab bars installed in the shower and bathtub is a good idea for everyone, but it’s especially important for older adults and individuals who require extra assistance.

3.            A grab bar by the toilet helps anyone who has difficulty standing. Grab bars no longer have to look institutional. They come in a wide array of colors, styles and finishes.

4.            For optimal safety, investigate the option of having a safety tub or walk in shower installed. These are easily accessible and specially built to provide a safe bathing experience for seniors and people with disabilities.
