Bathroom Safety: When It Comes To Playing It Safe–Age Doesn’t Matter
Bathroom Safety: Have you ever thought about what life would be like if you were nervous about the most common things that you do every day? Instead of venturing wholeheartedly into a new activity, you find yourself being tense and a bit anxious. Well, imagine if this was your “normal”.
I’d just returned from vacation. And after a couple of minor slipping incidents, I started to think about what accessories could have been in place to prevent them. Since we all want to feel totally confident and safe in our homes and the places we visit, what could have been different?
We all know about grab bars in bathtubs, showers, and around a toilet. But I have to admit that, until recently, they’ve been pretty drab and hospital-like. Most of my clients think that grab bars are for their parents. Not for them. After all, they’re not “old” yet. So instead, we find ourselves in denial that we might be able to use them now. We reach for the towel bar when we slip getting into the bathtub. And if we’re lucky, it will support our weight! We walk down the stairs with an armful of laundry and hope the dog doesn’t run up behind us and cause us to fall.
So imagine my surprise when I opened an email from Delta Faucets, and discovered that they just might have the answer to this dilemma. A new introduction to their company is Delta Decor Assist Accessories.
