Often, having an accessible bathroom can make all the difference to whether or not someone can live independently. Bathroom suites have evolved over recent years, and designer bathrooms are available with features that make them much more user-friendly.
 
Wet rooms, low-level shower trays and walk-in baths can be used independently by people with limited mobility, while a bath lift or bath seat and a strategically placed grab rail or two can really enhance safety.
 
Again, with safety in mind, anti-scald mixers, no-touch taps and non-slip flooring can all play a part, along with toilet frames and raised toilet seats.
Technology may be the answer to privacy in the smallest room, even for individuals with very limited mobility and/or dexterity. An automatic bidet toilet system, either a dedicated unit or an add-on, offers hands-free functionality.
 
These are the products you can find in the bathroom pages:
 
Easy access showers – accessible enclosures
 
Bathing aids & bathlifts – for independent bathing
 
Walk-in baths – accessible baths and body dryers
 
Support & safety – grab rails and safety products for the bathroom
