The bathroom is a damp place. If the decoration is not done properly, the elderly or children are likely to slip and fall in the bathroom, which is prone to safety hazards~
Because the elderly’s actions are relatively slow and their reaction speed is relatively slow, they are more likely to slip and fall in the bathroom than children and young people. Support the problem to tell everyone about the details that need to be paid attention to when decorating the bathroom used by the elderly. It seems that there are elderly people in the home.
1. Shower room
1. If there is an elderly person at home, it is not recommended to install a shower room with a glass partition, because in case of a fall, the impact of the glass may aggravate the injury of the elderly, so you can install a shower curtain partition, which is safer to use
2. The elderly generally cannot stand for a long time when taking a bath, and they tend to lose energy. Therefore, it is best to equip a shower chair in the shower area. Note that the shower chair mentioned by the editor is not an ordinary pony. The slip resistance of these small benches is not good. It's more dangerous to use
The shower chair is a chair with one end fixed on the wall with a support point, which is safer to use
3. If you have conditions at home, you can also consider installing a sitting shower, which is safer and more convenient to use
It is often more difficult for the elderly to get up when squatting on the toilet. At this time, a small toilet stool can be equipped so that the strength of the arm can be borrowed when getting up, which will be easier.
Three, mobile support
If the elderly use more handrails in the bathroom, it will be more safe and secure, and the elderly will also save effort. However, the traditional fixed handrails are more in the way.
You can try to install armrests that can move and rotate. You can put the armrests on when you don’t need them.
