REMODELING YOUR BATHROOM TO HELP ELDERLY FAMILY MEMBERS

Most people remodel their bathroom for aesthetic reasons, or to correct design flaws like the awkward placement of a sink. But if you have an elderly family member living at home, or someone who has limited mobility, there may be an entirely different reason to conduct a bathroom redesign. You can remodel your bathroom to make it easier for them to function, helping erase some of the daily challenges they may face and improving not only their quality of life, but their self of independence as well. A good plumbing service can help with the planning and arrangements, and luckily, Dumont NJ has a service with the experience you need to help in such matters. Before that can happen, however, it helps to know just what kind of features are available, to give you an idea of what to plan for. We’ve included a brief list of some of the more popular options below.

COMFORT HEIGHT TOILETS

Sitting on the toilet is something we all do every day, but because toilets are usually one-size-fits-all, that can cause problems for someone with limiter mobility. The solution is to install a comfort height toilet sized to fit your family member, allowing him or her to more comfortably sit on it, and to get on and off with as little assistance required as possible. In some cases, this may also mean adjusting nearby counter spaces and other impediments to give your family member room to maneuver on and off.

WALK-IN/ROLL-IN SHOWERS

Many showers in modern bathrooms are part of a bathtub, which can prove troublesome for invalid family members who may need to step over the side of the tub. That can be easily modifier to become a walk-in or a roll-in shower: eliminating the tub, but allowing free and easy access for cleaning.
