Bathroom Safety for Seniors

 In today's video, the occupational therapists at Entwistle Power Occupational Therapy discuss the most dangerous room in the home: the bathroom.

For those with limited mobility, or seniors, it is important to consider the fall risks that exist in the bathroom to ensure that people are safely able to go about daily routines.

These might include mats, bars, lifts, benches or even home modifications - of course the solutions will depend on the person's condition, age, and the layout of their home. Hope you enjoy this video and can use some of these tips to stay safe at home!

Baby boomer Anita Hamilton has always been interested in the "real people" stories behind the characters that create and inhabit the world of music, books, movies, television shows, current events, history, etc. A lifelong love of research (ok, nosiness) and writing, combined with a loving and supportive family (complete with 3 mini-dachshund minions), keeps her busy.
