You may also want to consider laminate, as it is generally less slick than tile would be, whether it is wet or dry. While mats and rugs can protect the floor and keep it from being too slick, they can also be tripping hazards. Consider thinner rugs that do not bunch up easily, along with rugs that have rubber backing and would not slide around.
The mat in your bathtub or shower should stick tightly so walkers and wheelchairs would not get caught on it. You can also choose a tub or shower with a textured bottom to avoid sliding, and you would not need to use a mat inside. Some bathrooms are not right for rugs and mats of any kind. Sometimes even the best options can still get bound up in a wheelchair or the edge caught by a walker.
