Do you want to stay in your home as long as possible? If so, you might need to consider a few things to ensure that your home is accommodates your wishes. Consumer Reports has found that over 200,000 people end up in the emergency room each year with injuries that occurred in the bathroom. Now the thought of larger doorways, grab bars, and wheel chair accessible showers might have you thinking that your home will resemble a nursing home, think again. Jim is a Certified Aging and Place Specialist so he knows how to ensure your home will be safe, accessible, and comfortable without compromising style.
Options to consider are lighting, wider doorways, zero entry walk in showers, easy to reach shelves, grab bars, and taller toilets. We want the bathroom and shower to have enough room for whatever your circumstances, for you to easily maneuver. Multiple showerheads, shelving, seating and grab bars can all be integrated in an ascetically pleasing design.
