OUR PARENT'S GREATEST FEAR

Our parent’s greatest fear as they grow older is not finances or health.  Our parent’s greatest fear is falling in the shower or bath tub. Occupational therapists state many seniors no longer shower due to their very real fear of falling in the bathtub or shower. One low cost solution for our parents is the example as shown in the picture. A simple transfer bench where our parents can sit comfortably, swing their legs around and shower without standing. Also shown in the picture is a simple hand held shower that allows the user the ability to move the shower head up and down.  Now the shower is accessible to everyone in the family - the 6 ft. tall husband, the 5 year old and now your parent using the transfer bench. There are many solutions that will allow our parents to remain safely in their home for many years to come; this is one low cost solution. For more ideas on barrier free design, please contact us.
