Bathroom / September 4, 2018 / Romina Doran
If your current bathroom is not safe, or you find that it is really inconvenient, it may be time to seriously look at a remodel. Then you can have the ease of use you want, and you will also not have to worry so much about slips, falls, and other concerns as you age. Especially if you live alone, falling in the shower or the bathroom can be physically devastating.
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.
