Bathroom / September 4, 2018 / Sadie Brumfield
If your house has stairs, one of the best ways to reduce risk is to have a bathroom on the first floor. Some two story homes, especially in certain parts of the country or in older, more established neighborhoods, have only one bathroom: upstairs, close to the bedrooms. While that made sense years ago, it also created problems for anyone who had trouble climbing stairs.
Another add on to consider is an option to help you stay cleaner. There are add ons that can provide you with the basic feel of a bidet, so you can get cleaner without as much effort. Having something like this can make it easier for an elderly person to stay clean, and that can not only help them feel better about caring for themselves, but can also reduce the risk of infection and related problems.
