  • Install a walk-in tub These are among the best and most popular accessible bathroom upgrades given the amount of safety features they include, such as a built in shower chair and a handheld showerhead. This makes task of bathing easier, safer, and more comfortable with or without assistance.
  • Raise the height of the toilet Raising the height of a toilet just five to seven inches can make a world of difference for a person that has difficulty standing or sitting on their own. Elevated toilets allow a person to stand or sit safely and with minimal effort.
  • Widen the entrance Doorways should be widened to 32 to 36 inches in order to allow easy wheelchair, walker, and scooter access. These measurements are compliant with ADA (Americans With Disabilities Act) design requirements.
  • Use slip-proof mats Non-slip mats in the shower and outside of are highly recommended. Their surface provides enough grip even when wet to reduce the likelihood of dangerous slips and falls.
  • Install bathroom grab bars These are one of the simplest and easiest ways to make a bathroom more elderly and disabled-friendly. Mount bathroom grab bars in the shower, close to the toilet, or anywhere else additional stability is needed.
