National Bath Safety Month is a great time to focus on ensuring that your bathroom is a safe and accessible space for everyone in your household. Whether you’re a parent with young children, a senior citizen, or someone with mobility issues, you should have a safe bathroom environment. Let’s keep bath time relaxing and enjoyable with these tips.
1. Install grab bars in the tub and near the toilet. These bars provide a secure and stable support for getting in and out of the tub, and for sitting down and standing up from the toilet. Look for bars that are securely anchored to the wall, and make sure they’re installed at a height that’s comfortable for the user.
2. Use a non-slip mat or adhesive strips in the tub or shower. These products can help reduce the risk of slips and falls, especially for those with mobility issues or balance problems.
3.Keep the bathroom floor dry and clutter-free. Wipe up any spills or splashes immediately and remove any clutter or obstacles that could trip someone up.
4.Use a shower stool or bench. They provide a stable and comfortable seat while showering and can help reduce the risk of falls.
By following these tips, you can help make your bathroom a safer place for you and everyone in your household. Happy National Bath Safety Month!
