For many elderly and disabled people, special accommodations in their homes are essential to prevent injury. Bath & bathing aids installations require some research to make the right purchase, so here are our top five choices for bathing aids for seniors.
1. Shower Stool with Back Support and Hand Rails
We highly recommend this, and it is excellent for those who need a little extra support when it comes to showering. The design of this stool reduces the risk of falls as there are four legs rather than three, which makes it much harder to slip. It also has rubberized suction cups, backrests, and two arms for extra stability.
2. Suction Cup Grab Bar
These suction cup bars are excellent for those who prefer a more traditional grab bar. They can be attached or removed in seconds and work exceptionally well on tiles, fiberglass, and other smooth surfaces. Ensure that the surface is clean before mounting them and installed correctly for added safety.
3. Tub and Shower Transfer Bench with Back Support
This transfer bench is sturdy and stable, making it easy to get from one place to another. It's also waterproof, so it can be used directly on the tub floor or even on a pool deck if desired.
The bench provides a comfortable seat during the pre-bath shower to ensure safety for seniors. It's perfect for those who may have difficulty entering or exiting a bathtub to take a quick shower before beginning the bathing process itself.
4. Raised Toilet Seat with Arms
This is a perfect choice for those who may have trouble sitting down on the toilet seat itself. It raises the seat's height, so it's easier to get up and sit down without straining yourself during the process. The arms are also adjustable so that you can raise or lower them as needed.
5. Shampoo Tray with Handles
This type of tray is placed over the normal sink and enables someone in a wheelchair to lean forward so they can reach it easily. This one has compartments for shampoo, conditioner, soap, shaving cream, razors, or anything else they need when bathing.
The tray can be used as a seat during the shower and mounted on the wall so that it keeps you upright when washing your hair. There are sturdy handles attached to ensure that you have a safe grip while showering.
