Remodeling Bathroom for Disabled and Elderly Persons

We have experienced a steady increase in the number of requests for bathroom remodeling projects designed for the elderly and disabled in recent years. In that time we have acquired the capability, but moreover the understanding to properly accommodate each unique situation.

As we age, our ease of mobility can become hindered by various conditions including arthritis in the knees and hips. This can make getting in and out of the tub or shower, as well as maintaining one’s balance once inside, challenging at best.

Bathtub and Shower Grab Bar Installation

The installation of grab bars in the bathtub and shower will give anyone added support.

There are several considerations that must be made prior to installing grab bars. Positioning each grab bar at the correct height for the bathroom user to comfortably access them is critical.

If employed the grab bar will need to sustain the user’s body weight plus any momentum which means the grab bars must be correctly anchored to the wall supports.

Chair Height Toilets with Grab Bars

The installation of grab bars at the toilet is also advisable during the bathroom remodeling process. Depending on the height of the user, the installation of a chair height toilet or adjustable seat toilet may also be warranted. Special lift toilets are also available to assist in the lifting and lowering of seniors and the disabled.

Shower Enclosure Wheelchair Access

For ease of wheelchair and walker access into the shower enclosure we can include a ramp when installing the bathroom floor and shower tile.

For additional ease of showering the installation of a custom shower seat and hand shower can make a substantial difference.

Walk-in Bathtubs

A walk-in bathtub can go a long way to prevent slip and fall injuries in the bathroom. Getting in and out of the walk-in bathtub is no problem. Most even come pre-equipped with safety rails and non-slip floors.
