Importance of Bath Safety

Being able to complete every day activities such as going to the restroom or taking a bath should not be an issue of safety. However, for many people it is. Regardless of age, a slip or fall can be a devastating event, which can leave a drastic affect on the quality of an individual’s life. The importance of bath safety is even more imperative if you suffer from arthritis, limited mobility or chronic joint pain.  If you have one of these conditions you may benefit from having bathroom assistance and safety accessories in your home.

The bathroom is a high-risk area because of the number of slick surfaces in the area along with the presence of water. For those with limited mobility concerns, the bathroom may be the only place where a certain level of privacy is still obtained. This is especially true if a caregiver is involved. For this reason, making sure your home is equipped with safety devices or accessories will not only improve the amount of privacy you can obtain but also provide a higher level of safety in a place where you will spend a lot of your time, the bathroom.

Aeroflow carries a wide array of name-brand medical and home healthcare bath safety products including raised toilet seats, bath benches and shower chairs, bathtub rails, non-slip shower and bath grips, and more. Products come with all necessary tools for quick and painless installation, and most carry a manufacturer’s warranty. Bathroom mobility accessories are considered by Medicare to be personal convenience items and are not billable through insurance. However, Aeroflow Healthcare offers private pay options and payment plans in order to assist you in receiving the equipment that you need.

All of the accessories mentioned below are available for purchase through Aeroflow Direct.

  • Shower Chairs – Showering is much easier and comfortable.
