We are in the process of remodeling our bathroom and would appreciate hearing suggestions that would be helpful going forward. John is still mobile but his falls are increasing. To be honest I am expecting the worse, but suspect there is still a portion of time where he can remain relatively independent. I'm having the tub taken out and replacing with a shower area that he could sit and shower, the lip would be roughly 3" so I think (maybe foolishly) that I can help him step over. Do you find bars place by the commode helpful ?
What do you think? Is this a waste of money? A good idea? What obstacles did you encounter - what would or is helpful? Is there possibly something better we should be spending our money on for the future that I simply don't have a clue yet.
I realize that most of you are facing far more serious concerns, but I would sincerely appreciate any and all input.
