Most Falls Occur in the Bathroom

Beware the Bathroom! Some things to consider adding to your bathroom to reduce the likelihood of a fall:

· Grab bars and support poles
· No curb or barrier free showers
· Elevated toilet seats and handrails
· Shower seats – both free standing or attached to a wall
· Rubber bath mats
· Locating hand-held shower wands so they can be easily reached from a seated position
