Celebrate National Bath Safety Month

January is National Bath Safety Month!  Now is the perfect time to update and remodel your bathroom .  Here are a few tips to help make your bathroom a safer place for you and your family.

Tips for Bath Safety Month:

  • Install Grab Bars - Safety grab bars provide support and help you prevent slip and falls.  They don't have to clash with your decor either.  There are many different design options that can help you create a safe, but elegant bathroom look.
  • Upgrade to a Walk-In Shower - Stepping into and out of a bathtub increases your risk of falling.  Walk-in showers can help make your bathroom safer for kids and adults looking to age in place.
  • Keep Your Bathroom Well-Lit - Make sure your bathroom is well-lit and cleared.  This will help make sure you can see what you are doing and help keep you from losing your footing.
  • Use Bath Mats - Non-slip pads can help provide an extra grip to prevent bathroom falls.  Children and aging adults may have a hard time with balance.  Bath mats can help provide extra stability!
