I’m sure we can all agree, life is an incredible journey. Yes, it’s not always sunshine and rainbows, but it’s all meant to help us grow as individuals, and learn how to enjoy it, every minute. We don’t exactly see this when we’re young but eventually with age, and yet, we still prefer being young.
I believe, apart from the apparent reason that has to do with having our appearance changed, part of the fear of being old is losing your independence, and going through depending on others for things as simple as taking care of hygiene. This is something everyone with disability goes through. Let’s be honest, who doesn’t fret the idea of requiring help with something as personal as bathing?
Thankfully we live in an era of developments, and there are plenty of bathroom disability aids, or any aids for that matter, to choose from to make life less of a hassle for the elderly, and people dealing with balance, and mobility problems. A stroke, arthritis, Alzheimer’s, or disabilities can be difficult to handle daily, more so when they impede hygiene.
Whether it’s a raised toilet seat, over toilet aid, toilet surround, shower stool, shower commode, bath lift, bath sponge with long wire handle, grab rails, or anti-slip accessories, you can rest assured taking care of hygiene would no longer be such a challenge. Getting to and from the shower, tub, or toilet wouldn’t be as troublesome, or dangerous.
The bathroom disability aids are designed to take the hazards away from the bathroom, improving all its slippery and uneven surfaces. If you, or anyone you love are dealing with balance or mobility issues, bathroom aids can make it easier to take care of personal hygiene, and not appear as something that should be the cause for emotional pain, or fear.
This means, while they increase the safety, helping prevent falling accidents, and risks of falling injuries, such as broken bones, or head injuries which can exacerbate mobility even more, or lead to death, they also increase the convenience, and independence. The falling injuries aren’t just costly, but serious life threats to people with disabilities.
You can be sure, when you invest in bathroom aids, this would greatly reduce the need for care givers’ assistance. Needless to say, these aids increase the quality of hygiene when it’s done by the person with mobility issues themselves. As a basic human need, anyone should be able to feel relaxed when taking care of personal hygiene.
