Designing an Accessible Bathroom doesn’t mean it has to be a cold and dull space! Gone are the days of the metal hand grips and unattractive showers. We no longer have to sacrifice style when accessible living features are required.
A shower is more accessible for wheelchair access and is easier to get in and out of. The size and position of the shower as well as the slope of floor, type and location of drains, and the plan for doors, curtains or open entries all need to be well thought out. The curb should be lower profile as it becomes more difficult to step up as you age.
Due to current economic situations and desires, many of today’s seniors are and will be “aging in place”. Their space should be comfortable and attractive, as well as safe. Call Kathy for more Aging in Place solutions. (616) 402-4871
