Shower Chairs


 

Nurses Notes

Carex Compact Adjustable Round Shower Stool:
Many 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 shower seat which allows for safe and comfortable bathing in tubs or shower stalls. These seats are made not to slip and allow your loved ones to take their time bathing. Also consider investing in a raised toilet seat or commode frame for the same bathroom safety reasons and to allow more independence. TIP: Recommend getting hand held shower to reduce water leakage and add to comfort. If your budget permits be sure to buy the seat with the back as it is alot more comfortable according to many patients.

The back allows additional comfort comfy and safety support. Your elderly folks will enjoy having a shower chair that makes them feel safe and at the same time accommodates limited living space. Also consider investing in a raised toilet seat or commode frame for the same bathroom safety reasons and at the same time allow more independence. Remember the bathroom is where most of the accidents occur so be proactive.
