Helpful Tips For Bathroom Safety

Bathrooms can potentially be one of the most hazardous rooms in the home, whatever your mobility. Surfaces can often be wet and slippery, and there are hard, angular fixtures and fittings.

Home safety is always paramount, and especially so for those with disabilities, who can often struggle to access standard conveniences and bathrooms. We have some tips and advice for keeping the bathroom safe and protecting yourself and your family.

The bathroom is inevitably going to have water dripped and splashed about, so keeping the floor dry is a primary essential task to prevent slipping and falling. Also, keep the bathtub clean and free from slippery soap scum.

Non-slip strips and mats in the bath and shower will help prevent any falls while showing and getting in and out of the bath. Ensure that the mats are always properly secured, and do not have any loose corners that could become trip hazards.

A bench or seat in the shower is ideal for those who find difficulty in being stood up for any length of time. Even the fully-abled will discover the pleasure of having a seat under a hot shower after a long day!

There are times in everyone’s life when we find ourselves in a rush to complete our daily ablutions and get out of the house, maybe to work, or to meet friends. But it’s important to take your time in the bathroom. More haste, less speed, as the saying goes. Rushing is bound to increase the risk of tripping and falling.
