Have you thought how you might prepare your bath for your senior days
I'm there. I have a wall in shower and wouldn't dream of getting into the tub
I'd have to call the fire dept to get me out.
Although I think planning for and installing grab bars in the tub and shower are very useful and handy for anyone to use. And a comfort height toilet is my current and future choice.
If one were building or remodeling, some things just make sense to do, from the get go. If possible, it is always good to have a wide enough door and path in a main bathroom. Walkers and wheelchairs sort of require this, and you never know when one might be temporarily or permanently in ones future?
I absolutely despise Pat Boone...so I have vowed to never have a Walk In Tub that he now advertises and "sings" about.
To avoid the risk of elders falling in bathrooms it is important to consider about converting tubs into walk-in or step down showers by lowering the threshold making it easily accessible to the elders.
So much for the above poster
When we add on a new master suite it will be equipped with aging in mind. Wide sliding doors, walk-in shower with seating, a high vanity and a low vanity, grab bars and high commodes.
Life is a great big canvas...throw all the paint on it you can.
