Bathroom Safety for All Ages: Creating a Safe and Accessible Space

The bathroom: a sanctuary for relaxation and rejuvenation. But it can also be a potential hazard if not designed with safety in mind.  This is especially true for families with young children or seniors who may require additional support.  The good news is that creating a safe and accessible bathroom for everyone is achievable!

Safety First: Essential Features for All Ages

Bathrooms can be slippery and pose a risk for falls. Here are some essential safety features to consider:

  • Grab Bars: Strategically placed grab bars near the toilet, shower, and bathtub offer crucial support for those with limited mobility.

  • Slip-Resistant Flooring: Choosing the right flooring material is key. Opt for textured tiles, non-slip mats, or even consider a walk-in shower with a built-in slip-resistant surface.

  • Proper Lighting: Adequate and well-placed lighting is essential throughout the bathroom, especially near the shower, bathtub, and vanity. This helps to illuminate potential hazards and improve visibility.

  • Shower Seating: Installing a shower seat provides a safe and comfortable place to sit while bathing or showering, reducing the risk of falls.

  • Faucets with Easy Grip Handles: Lever or handle-style faucets are easier to operate for people with limited hand strength or dexterity.
