Making your bathroom more accessible is necessary as you age and become less mobile. Making sure you large whirlpool baths, bathroom sink vanity units and commercial toilets are usable for you is very important. By making sure that these are user friend;y and easy to use, you can maintain your sense of independence and age gracefully.
In addition to bathroom sink vanity units that are friendly to older people, walk in bath tubs are a great way to maintain some autonomy. These are great for people with limited mobility because they offer features like safety rails and non stick floor mats. Getting in and out of these is much easier than a normal bath tub would be for people of less than normal mobility. Another type of tub that is great for the elderly is a soaking tub. These allow the person to be fully immersed in water, replacing the role that a shower plays.
While you are replacing your bathroom sink vanity units, you might want to put in a corner tub. A corner tub is usually a lot bigger and roomier than a usual tub. This allows more than one person to fit in it. It can also be set up as a whirlpool style, jacuzzi tub that it great at relieving aches and pains. Similarly to soaking tubs, corner tubs are usually deeper than regular tubs would be.
One of change you could make while updating your bathroom sink vanity units would be to go to pressure toilet rather than a gravity toilet. These are great, because they save water. They remove waste from the toilet bowl using less water than a gravity toilet would, saving you money. As you get older, keep in mind that you might need to adjust the fixtures in your bathroom to work with you, rather than against you.
