Bathrooms

Toilet Safety Frames - Choose from a variety of value-priced toilet frames that make getting on and off the commode a breeze.  And if there’s a chance your guest might not make to the bathroom, Allegro Product Manager Daver suggests you consider a bedside commode.  Need to raise the toilet seat higher for easier use? Check out some of these options for simple & safe raised toilet seats.

 

Suction Cup Grab Bars - These life-saving grab bars install in seconds and are removable.  Non-marring.  No drilling.  Reposition to the ideal location for each user.

Bamboo Bath Seat and Shower Chair - This lovely bench fits in your bath or shower and looks great!  You might just want to use it yourself after your guests leave (great for shaving the legs in the shower, ladies).   Or, how about a folding shower chair to use and then put away for next time?  As long as you’re at it, really impress them and throw in a Long-Handled Bath Sponge and Hand-Held Shower.

No-Skid Bath and Shower Mats - Considered an absolute MUST for guest safety, regardless of age.  For a more permanent solution, try the Bath Safety Treads.

Tip:  Check your towel racks and soap dish in the shower to make sure they are secure.
