Bathroom safety equipment is designed to provide extra layers of protection and security for individuals
who are unable to bathe or toilet themselves. It allows them to live life to the fullest by actively participating
in handling their every day needs.Bathroom safety equipment offers many advantages for these
individuals. It restores their dignity, allowing them to take care of their hygiene needs by themselves,
instead of depending on others. It furnishes peace of mind, as they do not have to be afraid of falling.
Getting individuals in and out of the bath or shower is easier and less stressful for the individual and/or the
caregiver with the help of assistive equipment, and every day living activities like bathing or toileting are
more comfortable. There are four basic categories of bathroom safety equipment: bath and shower aids,
bath benches and shower chairs, grab bars, and toilet safety aids. The following are some common bath
and shower aids that one could find at a medical supply store.
