Bathroom / September 4, 2018 / Sadie Brumfield
Chair lifts can help with this, but a bathroom on the first floor is very important when you are aging in place. If your home does not have a lot of space on the first floor, getting a bathroom in there can seem difficult. But there are generally ways to make space. You may need to give up part or all of a bedroom, sun porch, patio, office, or another small room that you are not really using.
If you are finding yourself in that situation or you are looking for a way to avoid those kinds of issues when you get older, there are conversions and add-on options for you to consider. Most toilets are set at a standard height, but there are some available that are designed for the handicapped. They are also great for mobile elderly people because they are taller than average.
