Handicapped accessories for the bathroom

Do you have a loved one or a need for handicapped accessories in the bathroom? There are many different kinds of items available at your local pharmacy. If they can't help you, they can redirect you to someone who can. You can also search the internet using the keyword "handicap equipment" to find something that can make life a little easier and safer for everyone.

Does your loved one have a hard time using the bathroom stool? Sometimes, getting up and down is difficult for them, especially if the stool is lower than 17 inches. Head to your local pharmacy and ask them to raise your bathroom stool. Increasing the height of the stool will help with back and leg problems, making it easier for them to sit down and get up. You can also add handrails to make it even easier. Some handrails are portable and can be removed when they are no longer needed. Make sure to screw them into the floor to prevent movement when in use.

Bath time can be a challenge for your loved one if they need something to hold onto. The tub can be a problem if they can't get up and down or step high enough to get into it. How about using a lift chair for them? All they have to do is sit in it and press a button, and it will lift them up and into the water. There are also manual lifts to help transfer them from a wheelchair into the tub. The manual lift takes up a lot of space, but it's very useful because it can be used in other areas as well, such as lifting from a chair to the bed or another chair. One person can control this manual chair by placing the cloth swing into the wheelchair and setting the patient on it. Then there is a bar on wheels that can be wheeled over them and the mat can be hooked on. Crank the bar up and swing them over into the tub. There's no lifting required, and your loved one can relax in the tub. Taking them out is just as simple - just reverse the process.

Sometimes showers are easier for you and your loved one to use. You can also install a walk-in shower to make life easier. There's no stepping in and out - you can simply walk in. These showers come in many sizes to accommodate your needs, from small walk-ins to ones large enough to fit a wheelchair. With a wheelchair-sized shower, you can just push or wheel them in and they can shower while sitting down.

Shower chairs are sometimes used for those who find it difficult to take a shower. Some people can't stand long enough to shower, or they are too weak to stand and shower. The shower chair is great for this. Some shower chairs have holes in the seat for the water to run through, and some have arms for them to hold onto. Wheels can also be added to help move them around. Shower chairs with wheels are convenient; you can move yourself in or out of the shower without assistance. Whenever someone can be as independent as possible and safe at the same time, it makes them feel better.

You can also add a showerhead to your shower to make life easier. If the showerhead is on a hose, it can be taken down to make washing easier. The chair doesn't have to be pushed up so close to the shower wall - just stretch out the hose. Some people, as they get older, are scared to have water spraying on them, especially into their eyes. Using the hose keeps the water out of their face and they feel more secure and safe.

Remember, making the bathroom safe and easier for you or your loved one makes life a lot easier for everyone.
