Bathroom Safety Products For Seniors

Bathroom safety products are high on the list when a caregiver considers where money spent can make a difference. When caring for Alzheimer's patients, the bathroom poses some of the greatest injury risks. The Alzheimer's Store offers safety products for seniors and those with Alzheimer's, dementia or severe memory loss.senior bathroom safety

For the new caregiver, we offer learning resources, such as the Bathing Without A Battle DVD, to help the affected individual maintain their personal hygiene. Also available are safety products to assist in bathing, such as rinse-free body bath, shampoo, and body wipes. Water usage alarms and toilet overflow alarms are also available to help prevent water damage and accidental slips.

The biggest bathroom danger is the slip/fall and break a bone. This can happen in a split second without warning. A good example is a condition called Stranger in the Mirror. This occurs when the person virtually thinks of themselves in younger years and gets startled when they see themselves in the bathroom mirror. They quickly turn around to see who could be in the mirror behind them as this older version of them is a stranger. When they quickly turn around, they are more likely to fall. For bathroom safety, we recommend removing all mirrors in the room or at least covering them up. Some people go to the extent of removing the cabinet and replacing it with one of our lockable memory boxes. This can easily accommodate all the supplies of a typical medicine cabinet but has no mirror.

The anti-scalding device is not only a great resource to keep the individual from harming themselves, but is also great for the caregiver when regulating temperature. It is very important to check the temperature EVERY time the water is being used because although the temperature can be regulated, how it feels at that time to the patient can change momentarily. Options like the Shampoo in a Cap can assist with an affected individual who does not want to get in to bath or shower. For those with dementia that are comfortable with bathing, however, you can use a bath cape to comfort the individual and provide modesty.

Safety products for seniors can be unique as a toilet overflow alarm. This product guarantees that a tank toilet will never overflow again. It is natural for a person to jump up from a toilet when they think it is about to overflow. This action can result in real trauma exposing them to a greater chance of a slip and fall, which creates fear of using that toilet again or wanting someone to help them when going to use the bathroom.

Bathroom safety products can decrease the need for supervision, leaving the patient with more self confidence and respect for themselves.
