The bathroom might be the most dangerous room in your home if you are a senior citizen. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, every year one of every three seniors suffers a terrible fall usually requiring a hospital stay. Prevent serious falls by getting a bathroom renovation putting your safety first. But bathroom renovation ideas for seniors aren’t limited to just adding handrails. They can be fun and imaginative as you want.
Bathrooms for the elderly should not have decorative scatter rugs or hard flooring. When these get wet, they get slippery. Now is the time to ask about carpeted bathrooms.
Other ideas include raised toilet seats and walk-in bathing units. Installing hand-held spray nozzles in sinks can help reduce the need to bend and possibly lose balance in order to catch the available stream of water.
Many seniors use dimly-lit bathrooms because they spend so little time in there. But having brightly lit bathrooms can reduce the risk of falls. Seniors should also use night lights that automatically turn on, recommends the Center for Independence of the Disabled.
