Top 5 Tips To Make Your Bathroom More Elderly Friendly

Top 5 Tips To Make Your Bathroom More Elderly FriendlyShower and bath time are one of the most relaxing things that you can do. However, it’s no question that the bathroom is also one of the places where slips and falls often occurs, especially for our elders who have difficulty in moving around. To keep that from happening, here are some tips that can help make your bathroom a lot safer for them.

1. Install Grab Bars
Consider installing grab bars too since they come in handy for young or old. When climbing out of the bath or shower, the grab bar provides extra stability, minimizing the tendency to slip on any wet surface. It’s also a good idea to install them near the toilet for them to have something to hold on to when sitting or getting off the seat. In Fullsun, we provide several different series of high quality Louis Grab Bars which are highly durable.

2. Take Off Shower Stall Threshold
If you live with any family member who has difficulty in moving around, like an elder suffering from arthritis, it best that you bathroom doesn’t pose any risk of entrapment or hindrances like a shower stall threshold. This way they can easily come in and get out on their own. If you’re still on the process of building the bathroom, the best way to design it would be to come up with a layout that will easily accommodate a wheelchair to avoid future difficulties.

3. Avoid Locking The Door Or Opt For Bathroom Doors That Opens Out
Sure it would be uncomfortable for the rest of the family members if the bathroom can’t be locked. But if you live with an elder that has a problem with balance or easily get dizzy, getting in or out in case of emergency will be difficult with locked doors. A good compromise in this situation would be to have bathroom doors that open out to the room.

4. Opt For Adjustable Or Handheld Shower head
If you have a combined bathtub and shower area, equip your shower with a handheld or adjustable shower head. This way even family members of have mobility difficulties can maneuver easily, minimizing their movement in the shower. Also, they can use it while sitting safely on a Louis Shower Seat with backrest that is made of heavy duty reinforce aluminum pipe internally and covered with nylon. This way they can sit comfortably without any risk of slipping.

5. Make The Commode The Right Size
A commode or toilet chair is a portable toilet on a chair like frame with a hinged flap concealing a chamber pot designed to be placed at the bedside of a disabled individual with limited activity that may not be able to easily travel to the bathroom. So if you’re using this you should make sure that it’s not difficult for your elderly loved one to sit on. Older adults often begin to have mobility issues relating to arthritis and other conditions, or problems with hips, knees, or back. Stooping low to sit on many standard-model 15- to 17-inch commodes can be a challenge. To remedy that, you can purchase GEWC141A-a toilet lift available at Fullsun. This powered elevating toilet seat lift is designed for use by individuals with lower extremity or mobility disabilities or arthritis. This is works by gently lowering and raising (slant or vertical position selectable) the user on and off the toilet in a way that mimics the natural body motion.

Things In Your Bathroom That You Wouldn’t Regret Going High-Tech

Things In Your Bathroom That You Wouldn’t Regret Going High-Tech

When going for the high-technology bathroom, it’s easy to go overboard that it no longer feel like a bathroom you’d actually enjoy. But when done right and in moderation, it makes a bathroom look really modern but it also helps people relax better and can be convenient most of the time. Here are some ideas if you’re leaning towards the tech trend.

Underfloor Heating
If you’re like most people who go straight to the bathroom after waking up, stepping on cold floors especially in the bathroom is not a good way to wake up. Although wearing bathroom slippers should solve this, there are people who are too half-asleep to even bother with it so they go barefoot. So adding necessary warmth with underfloor heating can be a wonderful upgrade. They are also quite reasonable in price and can be easily installed before laying your tile. Controlled by a simple thermostat on the wall, they allow you the pleasure of a warm bathroom and even help to reduce moisture.

If you hate missing an important call or like to really take your time in the bathroom while browsing the internet, staying connected is possible. Many hotels have telephones in the bathroom for these reasons and so can you. Aside from that, you just have to ensure good home WiFi signal that reaches the bathroom.

Many homeowners nowadays like to have entertainment even in their bathrooms, because why not. Besides, a bathroom is no longer a place for utility but a place to relax as well. If you’ve also been contemplating about this, waterproof television and shower iPod dock are now widely available in the market.

Upgrade Your Sanitary Wares And Fittings
It is important to give the choice of sanitary ware lots of consideration – not only must you be sure to choose items that will be used but it’s also essential that they help make your shower and bath experience even better.

1. Bath
You now have the time to include in luxury every day. TOTO’s wide range of bathtubs is specially designed to maximize the little time you have for yourself. Our Bathtubs not only cleanse your body but also entice you to soak in supreme comfort and tranquility.

2. Faucets
Fullsun’s TOTO EcoCap offer flow rate of as little as 3.6 liters per minute. It allows you to wash your hands without guilt because it significantly reduces water consumption. This is made possible by mixing air with water which saves water without any loss in stream volume. Sometimes, people worry that while sensor taps may save water, it may also increase their energy usage. But with TOTO Self Power technology, accurate hand detection means only the minimum necessary amount of water is used, while located inside the unit is the second technology, a generator that harnesses the energy from water flowing through the tap to make the micro-sensor energy-self-sufficient.

3. Toilet
Have you heard about “aerosol effect” of germs when a toilet is flushed? This is when bacteria get projected into the air and surrounding surfaces whenever you flush the toilet. This is why it’s important to practice shutting the lid when flushing to prevent spreading germs all over the place. Having said that, if your toothbrush is too close to the toilet, you risk contaminating it in case you forgot to close the toilet lid before flushing. Better yet, if you or other family members keeps forgetting to shut the lid before flushing, why not switch to a toilet that does it automatically for you? Fullsun’s Neorest Toilet automatically opens and closes every use so you wouldn’t have to worry about spreading the germs and contaminating everything.

4. Shower head
Sometimes, the shower head can make or break your shower experience. Just head over to Fullsun’s product section and you’ll see different types of shower heads, from shower column, fixed shower head, hand shower to shower fittings. Fullsun’s TOTO Technology even offers two shower heads which are the Aerial Shower and Aerial Pulse that promotes comfortable and enjoyable experience while reducing water consumption.
