Bathroom for Seniors

As Baby Boomers are getting into their retirement years, they face an important decision: whether to move into a nursing home or stay in their own homes. For many, the choice to age in place is more attractive and affordable. 

Create a Safe Bathroom for Seniors

If you plan to stay in your home for the foreseeable future, it’s important to get a bathroom remodel and make safety updates to prevent injuries. Here at Express Bath, we specialize in safe bathroom upgrades like adding a walk-in tub or walk-in shower in Northern Alabama homes. 

If you’d like to learn more about how we can create a safer bathroom for seniors, please reach out to us by calling 256-502-9587 or contacting us online

Why Is It Important To Have A Bathroom Remodeled for Seniors?

Did you know that nearly 80% of all falls in the home happen in the bathroom? If you don’t take the time to make aging-in-place modifications to your bathroom, there’s a higher risk that you’ll injure yourself as your mobility changes. There’s a good reason we have National Bath Safety Month.

Our expert installers are here to help you determine which areas of your bathroom pose the biggest threat and create a safe, thoughtfully designed space that will better suit you for the years to come.

Install a Walk-In Shower in Northern Alabama

One of the best safety upgrades you can make to your bathroom is replacing your current shower with a walk-in shower. We offer barrier-free walk-in showers, which feature an entry that’s flush with the floor to help prevent you from tripping. 

If you need a more accessible bathing area, we can install a walk-in shower that’s compatible for use with a wheelchair or walker so you can enter safely in a way that works best for your needs. 

Our showers are made for seniors as they are made from easy-to-clean acrylic so you can wash down the walls with very little effort. This is especially important if you have limited mobility.

Install a Walk-In Tub in Northern Alabama

Another safe option to consider for your bathroom is a walk-in tub. We specialize in installing Rane walk-in tub bathing systems, which are known for their luxury and durability. Unlike a traditional tub, which has a high wall that you must step over, walk-in tubs have a low-barrier, secure entry door. 

Once inside, you’ll find a comfortable heated seat that will provide you with plenty of support while you bathe. For a luxurious experience, try turning on the premium water jets, which can help soothe sore muscles, promote healthy circulation, and allow you to unwind after a long day.

Bathroom Safety Accessories for Seniors 

Beyond adding a walk-in shower or tub to your bathroom, there are other bathroom accessories you can add to help you stay safe and prevent injury: 

  • Add non-slip flooring to your shower or tub area
  • Install grab bars for added stability 
  • Add a built-in seat to your shower to give you a place to rest as needed
  • Install anti-scald valves to prevent dangerous burns
  • Put out non-slip mats in front of your tub or shower 
  • Install built-in shelving so you don’t trip over your bathing products
  • Plug in motion-sensor lights so you can navigate your bathroom at night
  • Add an elevated toilet seat for easier use

Generally speaking, the sooner the better. Instead of waiting until your mobility changes, we recommend planning ahead and creating a safer bathroom as soon as you decide to stay in your home for the long term.
