In honor of National Bath Safety Month, we wanted to share our expertise on things to keep in mind when bathing your loved one.

1. Use a non-slip shower/bath mat inside the tub/shower.

2. Install grab-bars (we recommend not using the suction ones).

3. Remove slippery throw rugs from outside of the shower to avoid slipping when they go in and out of the shower or tub. If there is a rug, use a liner or gripper to secure it.

4. Use a shower chair if balance is an issue or if they experience dizziness
