Bathroom Safety Risks for SeniorsBathroom before becoming a bathroom for seniors

Before you plan your safe bathroom remodel, it’s important to understand the biggest safety risks to seniors in the bathroom. Here’s a closer look at some of these hazards: 

  • Tripping in the tub or shower area: Most bathtubs and showers have a threshold to climb over. As you get older, you might find that it’s harder to raise your leg over the threshold, putting you at risk of tripping and falling. 
  • Lack of lighting: Inadequate lighting in the bathroom can make it harder for seniors to navigate the room, especially in the middle of the night. 
  • Hard-to-use shower head: If you need to sit down while you shower or bathe, it can be hard to stay safe without an easy-to-use handheld shower head. 
  • Wet surfaces: When the floor outside your tub or shower gets wet, it’s a dangerous slipping risk. 

The Best Safety Updates to Make in Your BathroomBathroom for seniors with a walk in tub

To help prevent these safety risks, there are a few important updates we can make to your bathing area. In most cases, seniors choose to install one of the following options: 

Walk-in shower: We proudly install Jacuzzi® walk-in showers, which come with low-threshold options like 2” shower pans and barrier-free entries. These showers are also made from easy-to-clean acrylic, which makes cleaning tasks easier for those with mobility restrictions. 

Walk-in tub: Another option is to install a walk-in tub. We install Rane Bathing Systems, which provide the ultimate balance of safety and luxury. These walk-in tubs have a comfortable seat and secure entry door, so you don’t have to worry about slipping and falling. They also have a handheld shower head and premium hydrotherapy jets to help you feel your best. 

Safety Accessories to Add to Your Bathtub or ShowerBathroom for seniors with many bathroom accessories

Another important part of creating a safe bathroom for seniors is incorporating safety accessories in your tub and shower area. Consider having us install any (or all!) of these accessories so you can stay safe in your bathroom. 

  • Shower seats: We offer stylish fold-down seating options in our walk-in showers so you can have a comfortable place to rest while you bathe. 
  • Grab bars: These sturdy bars can be placed in your bathtub or shower area to give you extra stability as you climb in and out. 
  • Built-in shelving: By including built-in storage in your walk-in shower, you can keep your bathing products off the floor to prevent tripping. 
  • Slip-resistant flooring: Choose textured flooring for your tub or shower to prevent dangerous falls.

FAQs About Bathrooms for Seniors

When is the best time to remodel my bathroom to be safer?

We recommend scheduling your safer bathroom remodel before you start experiencing major mobility restrictions. By proactively updating your space, you can prevent dangerous injuries. 

Is there anything I should remove from my bathroom for seniors?

Yes, as a good rule of thumb, you should remove loose bath mats from the floor of your bathroom, as they can cause falls. You should also keep corded items stored away when not in use, as they’re a tripping hazard.

Kelly was our installer and was unbelievably hard-working very conscientious and even went the extra mile and called in a grizzly Veteran plumber when presented with a problem. We have used Atlas before and will again soon!"

"This was our second experience with Atlas. The shower in our last home was truly a primary selling feature. We returned to Atlas because of the quality of the job and the professionalism of the install. We were happy to see the same installers we had at our other house three years ago arrive here today. Chad and Bill did an excellent job. We received the same professionalism and quality we expected. They arrived with all the materials they would need, no hidden surprises, quality materials. They truly live up to everything they promise!"

"Recently, Atlas Home Improvement finished the second phase of my bathroom remodel. Matt and Chad were here every morning on time, stated in their morning phone call. They were friendly, efficient, knew their job and the job site was always in order and clean. They even went out of their way to make sure I was aware of all aspects of the job. They were GREAT!!! This is a great company!!! Very clean and considerate while putting in my new shower. Time the sales consultant was wonderful and really listened to what I want and was never pushy or tried to sell me something I didn't want. David did a wonderful job installing my shower. Great product they sell. I recommend this company highly!"

"Dave put in a stair lift for me and I was very, very pleased with the whole experience. He assessed the situation with an eye on my safety and recommended changing the side of the staircase the lift was to be installed on. He did the installation quietly and quickly and without creating any mess. And he made sure I understood how the equipment worked and watched me test ride it. I could not have been more satisfied with the whole process. I would highly recommend Atlas to any senior looking to modify their home so that they can age in place."

"We were experiencing temperature problems with our brand new walk-in tub, in that the temperature would not get very hot. After a call to Atlas we were scheduled by the office staff for an appointment within 2 days, which we very much appreciated. Dave arrived on time and immediately diagnosed the problem - and he quickly fixed it. Dave was very professional, pleasant, friendly, and knowledgeable. Our problem has now been fixed! Thank you Atlas for having such a great installation, office, and repair staff."

"We had our shower completely re-done by Dave. It was a custom job that involved replacing a sub floor and some plumbing issues. They were friendly, hard workers, our shower turned out perfect! I strongly recommend Atlas Home Improvement they stand by their work!"

"Our dealings with Atlas Home Improvement have been nothing but a delight. We had booked them through Home Depot Home Services which had a salesman come out and was easy to deal with and took his time to explain all of the steps to the process. Atlas delivered the exact way they had promised we were in the loop knowing when our materials were ordered when they came in and to finally setting up the appointment. The workmanship was 5 star excellent and we could not have been happier with our new shower enclosure it really made a difference!"
