For our loved ones who are having a more difficult time as they age, it can be a great help having the “little” things often taken for granted taking a little less effort.
This is true in the bathroom as with every facet of life. For instance, did you know that you could buy a commode that can be used both at the bedside and over the toilet? One that replaces both a toilet safety frame and a raised toilet seat? Depending on your situation, this can save a lot of unnecessary pain while enhancing safety. The brand that we recommend, for its quality and popularity, is the Drive Medical Folding Steel Bedside Commode.
Depending on your needs, or the needs of your loved one, there are plenty of ways to make every day easier and safer.
That includes grab bars, toilet support rails, shower chairs, walk-in tubs, roll-in showers, and hand held shower heads.
While we can hope it never happens, for those who have already, or who fear they may become stuck in their bathtub, a bathtub lift can quickly make sure bathing is still safe and easy. One that we would recommend is the two piece Blue Whisper Bathtub Lift by Drive Medical. This is a fantastic choice as a safe and reliable option, with warranty from the manufacturer. A reliable feature of this model that helps set it apart, is that if it only has enough power to lower someone into the tub but not enough to lift them back up, it will not lower to begin with; this safeguard makes sure to never have the user be stuck without a way out.
All of these are available here at AZ Safe at Home for your comfort and safety.
