Aging in your home is something nearly everyone aspires to do, but one thing you want to make sure is possible is the ability to bathe safely in your home – especially if you are living independently or without assistance from a loved one or caretaker. With the aid of these helpful products and tips, you’ll be able to bathe worry-free for years to come. 

Be Prepared 

It’s helpful while you’re showering or bathing to have everything you need prepared beforehand. Before you start the shower or bath, be sure to gather what you need and make it easily accessible for when you need it. Some people prefer a liquid dispenser for products to make things a little easier. 

Take Your Time 

While this may seem obvious, we can’t stress enough how important taking your time is while taking care of yourself. Often, it may seem silly to move slow for something that seems so natural, or you may feel rushed if you’re crunched for time, but you will never regret taking a few extra minutes to be cautious while bathing and taking care of yourself.  

Install Grab Bars or Safety Rails  

Getting simple products, such as our bathtub safety rails and suction cup grab bars, can give you the little extra support that you’re looking for - without breaking the bank. These aids are especially helpful as you navigate in, out and around the bath or shower. One thing that users love about these products is how easy they are to install and move, and they can fit on or in nearly any tub or shower.  

Use a Mat 

This tip goes for both in and out of the shower or bath. There are both slip-free mats and strips for in the shower if you prefer showers over baths, otherwise if you’re a bath person, you’ll want to be sure to have a mat outside the bathtub to reduce puddles on the floor. This helps prevent slips and falls while exiting. 

Consider a Transfer Bench or Shower Chair  

One thing that is great about these products is how versatile they are. You can use them in almost all showers and baths, they come in multiple styles and sizes and are super easy to install – but the best part? These helpful products help your loved ones regain their independence and dignity while doing something private on their own.  

Don’t Be Afraid to Ask for Help  

Last but not least, we want to be sure to stress that there is no shame in asking for a little assistance. Whether it be from a caretaker or a loved one, everyone is here to help.
