Many people have trouble when it comes to bathing, this could be trouble stepping in and out, lowering and raising yourself or reaching to wash yourself. There are many potential solutions so these problems such as:
A Bath Step
A bath step makes it easier for someone to step into the bath by decreasing the height you have to raise your leg when stepping in and out. Works well for those who have trouble bending their knees.
A Bath Shortener
A bath shortener does exactly what you think, it shortens the bath. This enables you to always feel the end of the bath so that you have something to push against and don’t slip under the water if you don’t want to. Great for shorter people or just someone who wants added security.
A Bath Mat
Bath mats not only stop you from slipping in the bath they can also provide you with some cushioning against the bath which makes it more confortable to lay down. If slipping is your problem you could just try non slip bath strip stickers.
A Bath Seat
A bath seat is a small seat that sits in the bath and usually has non slip suckers on the bottom. This enabled people to sit in the bath but not have to sit all the way down into it, as they may have touble getting up from a completely lowered position.
A Bath Lift or Cushion
A bath lift is a seat which sits in the base of the bath and can be raised to the edge of the bath so you are able to slide across and be lowered down into the bath. The bath cushion works in a very similar way when a compressor pumps air into the cushion and then releases it when you want to be lowered. A bath lift or cushion is great for someone who wants to keep their independence but still wants to be able to have a bath instead of a shower.
A Bath Hoist
A Bath hoist is for someone with very little mobility who isn’t able to slide across a seat or raise their legs over the bath, the hoist does it all for you. The hoist is positioned adjacent to the bath. It lifts you up and over the bath then lowers you down into it.
