Home Safety Products for the Bathroom

Updated on September 4, 2015

All of us live very busy lives. We rush here and there, often not stopping long enough or looking as closely as we should to where we are going or what we are doing. This hurried lifestyle means that we are quite often at risk of injury because of running into things, slipping or tripping on items left out or falling. And while the younger generation may not see this harried pace as normal, as one gets older the moving quickly become a problem. Worse, it can be dangerous. To help make living better, and allow independence, too, many homeowners are taking a new look at home safety products.

Home safety products are always being introduced. They range from tools for kitchen efficiency to bathroom safety items, to products designed to make getting in and out of vehicles easier and safer. After all, we all know that the pain of falling and risking injury is not something to be overlooked!

In today’s world, there are more senior citizens than ever. Consequently, there are many products being designed to help them live safely- a large majority of these products are designed specifically with the home bathroom in mind. Should you have a loved one who wishes to live independently, but needs assistance with these most basic of daily activities, consider some of the following options available to help them. (It should also be noted that many of these products can make it safer for young children, too!)

  • Shower Safety Bars – We all know how slippery a shower floor can get. Having a sturdy safety bar installed makes it easy to get in and out of a tub/shower and reduce of falling. When combined with floor grips, entering and exiting the shower is easier.
  • Raised Toilet Seats – While this is not a product recommended for young children, it does make things easier for older people. Due to concerns such as arthritis and other issues that impede bending, it can be difficult to sit on a standard height toilet. These seats are slightly higher, and often have handles to keep someone from falling.
  • Shower Benches – These are ideal for people who are unsteady on their feet.

Home safety products are nothing to be downplayed. They can be difference between a serious injury and a minor scrape or bruise. By having home safety products in a home in place, you are protecting your loved one and providing peace of mind for yourself. If you have questions about what types of products will be best, talk to local caregivers or visit AbleMart of Harrisburg.
