No matter how calculated the steps you make, there’s always a chance of slipping and sliding in wet conditions, especially when transferring in or out of the tub. Oh yeah, and the “throw rugs” are so named for a reason: They can throw you! For this reason, I find scatter (throw) rugs a safety hazzard.

From your shower to your clothes hamper, the bathroom is one of the most personal rooms in the house. Yet, safety and health often come second to convenience and comfort. That’s why it’s important to be mindful of potential hazards. There are simple precautions you can take to reduce your risks, and improve your quality of life.
- Consider putting a cordless phone in the bathroom in a low area in case of an emergency.
- Use a toilet seat riser or toilet safety stand, which fits around the toilet area; which provides handrails for extra support.
- Install permanent/fixed grab bars in areas where you might need a little extra mobility support.
- Medication’s shelf life is better if kept in a cool dry area. Thus it is not recommended to store medicines in the “medicine cabinet”. Also, check frequently for medication that has passed its expiration date. Discard unused medication to avoid accidental confusion.
- Frequent hand washing with antibacterial soap helps to kill germs , that can spread colds or the flu.
- Throw rugs could “throw” you! It is recommended to eliminate them throughout your home. They can be a slipping hazard. If possible use a wall-to-wall non-skid rug in the bathroom (without extra scattered rugs).
- Non-slip roll provides a versatile solution to adding a non-slip or grip enhancement to any item or surface and offers a DIY alternative to most anti-slip issues. Material can be customized to any size or shape and is flexible and malleable so it can easily be applied to almost any item.
- Set your water heater to 120°F degrees or lower, to prevent scalding.

Do we treat our feet as well as we do other parts of our bodies? For various reasons, probably not! We tend to take our feet for granted, wearing ill-fitting shoes (just because they are cute), staying on them longer than we should, exposing them to hazardous surfaces. The list of foot neglect may be extensive depending on how little (or much) you value the base of your legs.
In some cases, there’s a desire to have better foot care; but the ability to reach them can sometimes be a challenge. There are solutions on the market for assistance for challenged individuals and the not-so-challenged, such as the Pistol Grip Remote Toe Nail Clipper with extended handle. Thoroughly checking the feet for skin breakdown or injury is important, especially for diabetics and other people with poor lower extremity circulation. Moisture is key as it relates to keeping softer feet. This Lotion Applicator is made to assist people who have difficulty reaching their toes.

Getting back to the normal life, after not being able to walk for a long time on both feet due to accident, is hard.

Thus, giving one the inspiration to stand and walk again on both feet.
Canes can be one example, which could be a help to patients in their practice to walk on their own. However, it can pose a probable hazard on the patient. Canes cannot fully support those who have a heavy weight. Untoward incidents, while using the canes, might lead to injuries, which could all the more endanger the patient.
Chances are, when the patient stumbles, there is nothing to hold on or to get some support. When he or she falls, it would then result to an added injury. Avoiding a fall is a lot more hazardous because you will need to exert great effort and it could cause sprain, fracture or worst, broken bones.
As a suggested solution, heavy duty rollators can be ideal for additional support to patients. With this, you are also assured of optimum security.
