There are many options when it comes to shower seats for elderly people.
The shower seat that you need will depend on how your bathroom and shower area is set up. You won’t for instance be able to use a three legged corner shower seat safely in a freestanding bathtub that has a hose and shower head attached to the faucet.
A corner shower seat works very well for most tiled walk in shower units, but usually won’t work very well for a pre-formed fiberglass tub and shower combination that many people have in their home.
For the ultimate in safety most folks look for a seat that can be permanently mounted to the wall by a certified contractor or plumber who is capable of performing the work.
Sturdy Support Is Necessary
There are shower seats for elderly people that provide a sturdy support that only have three legs, and many folks report that they had to try at least a couple of different models before they found one that they were really happy with.
For this reason it is important that you buy a shower seat from a reputable retailer, whether online or not, so that you can return the product if you are not happy with it.
When a person is disabled in some way that requires them to sit down when bathing but does not need any help from a nurse or home health care provider they certainly want to feel safe and secure in a slippery bathing area.
Read Product Reviews
This is why it is important to take your time, read some product reviews, and even talk to others who use disabled bathtub chairs or shower seats when bathing to see what sort of features they like in their own shower seat and which ones they don’t.
Those who already have a walk in shower unit or wet room type bath facility in their home will find it much easier to find a shower seat for disabled people, but whatever shower setup you have in your home you are sure to find a seat that will work for you.
Make A Smart Choice
After listening to other people’s opinions about these important bathing accessory products it is a lot easier to make a smart choice with the first purchase you make. After all, most people don’t want to be remodeling the entire bathroom into a handicapped shower unit space if they don’t have to, but if this is your choice, then the disabled wet room design that you choose is really only limited by your imagination.
Whether you are looking for seats to put into corner shower stall units at a public facility, or just looking to buy one of the really nice shower seats available, be sure to read as many reviews as you can, or talk to other people who are using one to see what they feel would be the right one for you.
