The Importance Of Practicing Bathroom Safety

At Advantage Home Health Solutions, it is our number one goal to provide safe and effective solutions for our customers. Refusing to acknowledge one’s mobility or accessibility issues as a permanent disability, we actively seek ways to remedy the lives of those who are presented with such barriers. Of course, not every individual is faced with the same limitation. That is why each and every one of our customers deserves special treatment.

It’s very important for us to be as informative as possible, so that each of our customers is equipped with the knowledge to make the best decisions about the solutions they see fit. As you’re likely aware, we champion safety as a key priority. And before recommending any solution to a customer, we like to discuss the safety issues that he or she may be presented with. There are particular rooms of the home, for example, that may present more safety concerns than others.

What room in the household can present a safety concern?

For many individuals, the bathroom is one of those rooms. While we may never have considered the potential dangers of a bathroom in our younger and more agile years, a room where there is generally harder and, at times, more slippery floors can be considered a hazard. Naturally, there several ways to access water in a bathroom. Therefore, the potential of creating slippery surfaces is increased.

This becomes a serious concern for those who are faced with mobility issues. Formerly simple tasks like bathing can become a lot more difficult. Especially when our advanced ages present decreased strength, it’s not as easy to avoid slips and falls. Not to mention, when we do slip and fall, it’s harder to recover from the injuries. So, it’s of paramount importance to take steps to avoid such injuries altogether.

What solutions can help you to avoid injuries in the bathroom?

It all begins with securing peace of mind. Knowing that you can enter a bathroom that provides you with safe access to each of its elements is an important step in leading a happier life with your mobility issues. At Advantage Home Health Solutions, we proudly offer a number of products that aid in one’s “normal” bathroom activities.

They include super poles, grab bars, shower grab bars, bath chairs, bath lifts and transfer benches. Each of these is an essential item for providing safe accessibility in your bathroom. But, as we mentioned earlier, we treat each of our customers as having a unique case. So, for those who require more extensive modifications, we offer even more solutions.

What extensive modifications do we offer?

For those who require additional assistance with bathing, we offer barrier-free showers, roll-in showers, walk-in tubs and slide-in tubs. Each of these can be designed to meet specific requirements. When discussing these solutions, we take into account that renovations may be needed to accommodate for installment. Because they can be costly, we insist upon providing ample information to our customers to assist them in making the most cost-effective decisions.

In cases when a bathroom renovation is either unaffordable or not entirely necessary, we suggest portable showers, as they take up smaller amounts of space.
