Bathroom / September 4, 2018 / Romina Doran
It makes getting in and out very easy and can reduce the risk of falling. If you are certain that a step in tub is what you want, be sure it is larger enough to accommodate you and anything you need, such as a place to sit down. Also consider the height of the tub edge, whether you will have a curtain or doors on it, and what you can do to make the space inside safer.
There are two common aging in place issues with toilets. First, getting up and down from the seat may become more difficult. Second, many bathrooms are not equipped to help people who need extra assistance getting up and down. Some people may have trouble keeping themselves as clean as they did when they were younger, and they may struggle to handle that issue without dealing with the embarrassment of asking other people to help them in the bathroom.
