Bathrooms for Seniors

As a generation known for self-reliance, it’s no surprise that many baby boomers are opting to stay in their homes for as long as possible. Staying in your home instead of moving to a retirement community or nursing home is known as aging in place and it requires some preparation.

Our installers here at CareFree Home Pros are here to help you create a safe and functional bathroom for seniors so you can age in place with ease. 

If you’d like to learn more about how we can transform your bathroom, call 860-215-3912 or contact us online.

Creating the Ideal Bathroom for Seniors

Sleek bathroom for seniors designed with safety in mind

When you hire our company to create a thoughtfully designed bathroom for seniors, we’ll take the time to sit down with you and talk about your biggest safety concerns. Since 80% of falls in the home happen in the bathroom, we’ll help you identify which areas of your bathroom pose the biggest threats and come up with a plan so you feel safe and secure, even as your mobility levels change.

The end goal is to help you maintain your independence as you get older and help prevent common bathroom injuries. Below, you can explore more about the best updates to make to your bathroom to help you stay safe.

Walk-In Showers

When picking the perfect shower for elderly family members, consider a walk-in shower with a low-threshold entry. Since the high threshold of a traditional shower poses a tripping hazard for seniors, we recommend choosing a barrier-free entrance, which is flush with the floor. This allows you to easily walk inside without fear of tripping.

We can even create a barrier-free walk-in shower that fits a walker or wheelchair for added accessibility.

Our walk-in showers are made from high-quality acrylic, which is one of the most durable materials on the market. Designed to prevent mold and mildew growth, acrylic is easy to keep clean with little effort, which is perfect for seniors with limited mobility.

Walk-In Tubs

If you’re searching for a bathtub for elderly loved ones, your best bet is a walk-in tub. Unlike traditional bathtubs, which have a high wall to step over, walk-in tubs have a secure door, allowing you to step inside without worrying about tripping. This senior bathtub option is designed with both luxury and safety features in mind, giving you a relaxing place to unwind without fear.

Our walk-in tubs have plenty of safety features to help you bathe independently, including the following:

  • Non-slip flooring
  • An ADA-compliant, comfortable built-in seat
  • Low-threshold entry
  • Secure grab bars
  • A handheld shower head

Safety Accessories to Add to Your Bathroom for Seniors

Whether you decide to install a new tub or shower or not, there are a few changes you can make so that your bathroom better fits your needs. Consider adding the following safety accessories to your bathroom:

  • A built-in, secure shower seat to give yourself a place to rest as you shower
  • Non-slip flooring in your tub or shower
  • Grab bars to give you extra stability in your tub or shower area
  • Non-slip bath mats to help prevent falls on wet floors
  • Plug-in night lights to help you navigate the bathroom at night
