Nurse's NotesMany homes do not come equipped with a walk-in shower or your loved ones do not have access to it. When this situation arises, I usually advise families to get a transfer tub seat which allows for safe transfers from the outside to inside of the tub. Transferring over the tub wall is a difficult task for the caregiver and loved one to manage without having the right equipment. TIP: Recommend getting hand held shower to reduce water leakage. Also consider investing in a raised toilet seat or commode frame for the same bathroom safety reasons and to allow more independence.
