Safer Bathrooms

1. Taps with levers are easier to use than turn taps if you have reduced strength in your hands.
2. A detachable, hand-held shower attachment for your bath means you can then sit rather than having to stand and shower.

3. Grab bars and rails make bathrooms safer – they’re easy to fit and cost-effective.
4. Raise the height of the toilet seat to make getting up and down easier, ready-to-fit seats can be easily purchased.
5. Place non-slip bath mats or tape in the bath or shower to reduce risks of slips and falls. Washable non-slip rugs are a good idea for the bathroom floor too.
6. Walk-in showers or wet rooms are great if getting in and out of the bath has become difficult. Fix a seat to a wall or free-standing one with rails to make it even safer.
