Many care recipients cr have difficulty with mobility this can especially be an issue in a small room such as the bathroom

Try: Depending on the cr’s condition it may not be wise to leave him alone in the tub or shower remove the locks from the bathroom door use plastic instead of glass containers in the bathtub make sure hairdryers electric razors and other electrical appliances are out of reach use non-slip bathmats on the floor on the outside of the bathtub so the floors remain dry try using a rubber mat or non-skid decals on the bottom of the tub or shower try draining the bathtub if the cr has a fear of falling try using a hand-held spray attachment on a flexible hose can convert the tub into a shower adjustable safety benches or bath chairs which have holes in the seat so water can drain can be used in both the tub and shower
