Bathrooms can be a significant fall risk if unsafe and not designed with your safety in mind. Many older adults fall in the bathroom at night when using the toilet or during or after a shower. Oftentimes, these falls can be avoided. EHM can re-design your bathroom so you can access the toilet safely and shower with peace of mind.
A proper height toilet is crucial as well as proper lighting at night. Appropriately placed grab bars next to toilets can assist with standing or sitting. In the shower, EHM can create wheelchair accessible showers or tub conversions to make getting in and out of your shower easy and safe.
A medical professional will advise on specific grab bar placement, shower seat placement, as well as all safety features such as adhesive floor mats and contrasting tile lines to improve orientation when standing.
