In the Bathroom

In the bathroom, replacing the toilet with a raised toilet seat with handles or a longer seat for people in wheelchairs or with limited hip movement. Install hand-held shower heads, a shower seat of bench, large shower and bath controls, and grab bars around the bathtub walls. Mechanized tub seats are available for people needing extra help getting in and out. Install faucets with a lever control for people with a weak grip. Insulate any pipes to avoid burns. Roll-in showers exist for people in wheelchairs.
