Bathroom Safety

  • Place a slip-resistant rug adjacent to the bathtub for safe exit and entry.

  • Mount a liquid soap dispenser on the bathtub/shower wall.

  • Install grab bars on the bathroom walls.

  • Keep a night-light in the bathroom.

  • Use a rubber mat or place nonskid adhesive textured strips on the tub.

  • Replace glass shower enclosures with non-shattering material.

  • Stabilize yourself on the toilet by using either a raised seat or a special toilet seat with armrests.

  • Use a sturdy, plastic seat in the bathtub if you cannot lower yourself to the floor of the tub or if you are unsteady.
