Slipping in the Bath

by Clare
(UK)

Bathing is getting harder and harder for my Mum, but we have recently found non slip bath safety stickers that we have put on the base of the bath.


This has given Mum much more confidence, and they are so easy to fit. She had a bathmat before but it was a nightmare to keep clean and it kept coming off, these stickers stay in place all of the time.

Rubber Mat for Walk in Tub
by: JoAnn

We have started using rubber mats with our newly purchased walk in tub for mom. It may seem like it is a "belt and suspenders" approach as the walk in tub should help just by itself.

The issue I worry about is the potential for mold under the mat if left there to dry on it's own. So, we are having to remove the mat each time she uses the bath...small issue but worth the trouble I think

Thanks Clare

Thanks for the info and for the subject.
My mom resisted when I suggested a chair for the shower and now she love, loves it. I asked her to 'just try it, I only suggest things to you that might help you be independent longer'

My brother also changed her bathtub by cutting out part of it and installing a door into the tub. We also installed a flexible shower head (which mom still has a hard time using but she has admitted that it was a good idea too).

I'm waving to you from California!
