Bathroom / September 4, 2018 / Romina Doran
Not all bathroom doors are wide enough to accommodate a wheelchair or a walker. Most will allow for what is called a transfer or transport chair, but that is not the same. Even with a transport chair, you would need someone to wheel you around. A traditional wheelchair, on the other hand, allows the user to move and steer themselves using arm strength.
If you share your bathroom with someone else who does not need a taller toilet, or if you have a newer or more expensive model you just do not want to replace right now, an add on can be a good compromise and make things easier for you if and when you need the extra help. Installing grab bars or rails next to the toilet can also help you stand up and sit down more easily, whether or not you choose to change the toilets height.
