What are some tips for seniors safety in the bathroom?

Helpful Ideas

When considering bathroom independence for the elderly, safety is of primary concern. Be certain that Grab Bars are located near the toilet if needed.In addition, the toilet itself should be high enough to facilitate sitting and rising. Many seniors have hip, knee or back problems which may render them off balance. Be aware that raisers are available to raise the entire bowl higher. Or, 2" to 6" toilet seats can be purchased to elevate the toilet.
