As we age, tasks that were once simple become more complex.Eighty-seven percent of adults age 65+, say they want to stay in their own homes as they age [1]. But, more than a third of seniors over the age of 65 slip and fall each year- eighty percent of those falls occur in the bathroom [2].

 

With some smart modifications, elderly residents can be safe and feel secure in every room of their house, and that includes the bathroom.

When thinking about how you can make your bathroom safe and accessible, it is good to incorporate “universal design” concepts which allow for easier accessibility for people of all ages, including aging loved ones.
