What are some tips for seniors safety in the bathroom?

Stepping out of the tub or shower

Stepping out of a bathtub can sometimes be problematic especially for seniors. Grab bars, a shower mat and bath steps are some helpful tools to ensure safety. Raising a leg up over a bathub can throw one off balance. Bath steps can be helpful to those who are unsteady on their feet. This should be place in front of the tub and should have an non-slip surface to prevent falls.
