Considering that the tub/shower can be wet and soapy means that one can slip and fall very easily. A nonslip bath mat can offer a sturdy grip and greatly reduce one’s risk of injury from such a fall.
If always feeling on alert for the slightest slip and a potential fall in the shower/tub, use of a shower chair can provide an additional sense of safety, and help to put one’s mind at ease. It is essential to use a chair with adjustable height legs so that it can be positioned at the height necessary for the individual. Using too low of a shower chair height increases the difficulty and safety of the task if it’s difficult to get up from a low position.
Using these simple items can make everyday tasks in the bathroom easier and safer.
