Safety in the bathroom
The bathroom can be one of the most accident prone rooms in the house, and as we get older, our ability to move around with ease and safety is often restricted, making safety in the home a growing concern for many. That is why it is important that we consider adapting the home to meet our needs, and to aid our mobility in the safest way possible, not only for your own assurance, but for the peace of mind of your family and friends.
With that said, choosing a bathroom that suits your requirements and ticks all the right boxes can be a difficult task. There are so many bathroom products out there on the market that can all equally improve bathroom mobility and safety, but how do you choose the features that are right for you and your needs?
Here at Mobility Plus, we provide a full design and bathroom installation service that is bespoke to you. You can chat through your requirements with one of our advisors and we will do our best to make sure that the process is easy and smooth as possible, with the end result being that you get a stylish and practical bathroom that is also safe and mobility friendly. Whether you opt for a walk-in shower, wet room or walk-in bath, all of which are installed with various mobility safety features that have been designed especially to make your bathing experience seamless again.
When thinking about your safety requirements, there are number of products and features to consider. The first is your bathing access, which shower tray will give you the easiest and safest access to your shower. Do you need level access to allow a wheelchair in and out of your shower or wet room? Is the door or entrance big enough to allow easy access for you? Mobility Plus offers a large range of low level and floor level shower trays and wide opening folding doors to allow you to get in and out of the shower with ease and without risk. Mobility Plus can also offer additional safety accessories such as hand rails and shower seats for complete safety and peace of mind when getting in and out.
Mobility Plus can also offer a versatile range of bespoke features that not only suit your safety needs but also your individual tastes. Choose your own wall and floor tiles as well as the doors and frames that suit you. They offer a versatile range of full and half height bifold doors that can fold in to allow wider access and also the option for carers to assist when required. There is also the floor level hinged screens or sliding door options that are great for wet room with wheel chair access or very low level steps. Whatever you need there are options that can suit both extreme and subtle mobility circumstances giving you both the space that you need and style.
