Shower Safety for Seniors

Showering for seniors must be a safe and private activity. Bathroom accidents are very prevelant in elders. A large, suction cupped shower mat is always in order to prevent slipping. Keep in mind that some people are allergic to latex so a non-rubber mat must be considered. Otherwise, rubber bath or shower mats are preferred for safety. Many sizes are available so check tub measurements before buying.
