Bathroom Fall Prevention Checklist
How fall-proof is your bathroom? Compare against our checklist:
☐ Is the path from the bedroom to the bathroom well lit?
☐ Are there grab bars near the toilet and in the shower and bathtub?
☐ If you have difficulty standing in the shower, do you use a shower seat?
☐ Are spills cleaned up immediately?
☐ Do your bathmats have slip-resistant backing?
☐ Do you remove soap build-up in your shower/bathtub to avoid slipping?
☐ Can you reach soap in the shower without bending down or turning too far around?
☐ Do you have a raised toilet seat if you have difficulty standing up and sitting down?
