How do I know if my bathroom is safe?

Bathroom Safety

Many home bathrooms are not properly equipped for safety for seniors or handicapped people.

Be sure to:

Add safety handles, for easier access to the tub.
Be careful with bathroom rugs
Add non-slip grids to the tub bottom.
Install rocker switches for lights, which are much easier on arthritic hands.
