Bathroom Aids

Daily living aids in the bathroom are designed to help reduce the risk of falls and assist with using the toilet, shower and bathtub safely and independently. 

  • Shower chairs are great if you struggle to stand for extended periods of time. Some even come with armrests to help you get up from a sitting position. 
  • Grab Bars greatly reduce the risk of falls and injuries by providing a helping hand when you need to get out of your shower or bathtub.
  • Non-Slip Shower Mats are a must have in any bathroom as this is where slips and falls are most likely to occur.
  • Raised toilet seats are a great option if you have problems sitting down or getting up from the toilet seat due to problems with arthritis, hip or knee problems.
  • Over Toilet Frames also assist with toileting but provide a more stability and support, when getting up from a sitting position.

  • Floor to ceiling grabs are also a great option to help you get up from a sitting position, but unlike bedside rails can be installed anywhere in your bedroom.
  • Dressing Aids can empower you to put on various clothing without having to strain your body and joints as much.
