This is why at Home Caregivers Management, Inc., we offer dependable bathing assistance to those who need it.
Other than bathing assistance, here are also some bathroom safety tips from us that you should keep in mind:
- Have grab bars or rails properly installed so that it can help the patient balance as they get up or down. It also provides something to hold on to if ever they do slip.
- Place nonslip mats or tiles to help prevent slipping.
- Have adequate lighting most especially at night.
- If your current toilet seat is low, we suggest that you consider buying a toilet seat extender or a toilet with a higher seat.
