What additions should seniors consider when upgrading their bathrooms?

Accessibility should be the theme of any senior bathroom. The ideal situation would be to have plenty of clear space to accommodate assistive devices, but other items to consider would be a tub of proper height, grab bars and an adjustable height shower head.

What are some trends in bathroom remodels, and how can seniors benefit from those additions? 

One of the most common items we install in large senior communities that we serve is a recirculating pump on the hot water heater. Wait times for hot water to reach the bathroom are not only inconvenient, they can be costly, as they affect both water and sewer bills. A recirculating pump is affordable and provides instant hot water to the user.

Are there specific bathroom items you would recommend in order to help seniors live safely and comfortably in their homes? 

Having the toilet at the proper height can make an incredible difference in the comfort and safety of the senior bathroom. Two of the most common options for achieving this are replacing the toilet with one that is the proper height or buying a seat extender.
