SHOWER CHAIRS & BENCHES / BATH SEATS
A bath chair or shower stool can make showering independently an option again when a person becomes too weak to stand alone while they shower. Unlike regular chairs, a shower bench for the elderly or for disabled people is specially designed for safe use in the bathroom, with non-slip feet, drainage holes, and rust-resistant material.

The standard bath chair is also built with adjustable legs so you can find the most comfortable height to suit your needs.
Purpose of a Shower Chair or Bath Seat
Having a bathroom shower chair or bench is essential if one is interested in ensuring that the safety needs of elderly and/or disabled individuals are not compromised. Any time a user has limited mobility, he may require assistance with maintaining hygiene. However, many seniors would rather have a degree of freedom and independence, and not rely on others to care for them. A bathtub shower bench can help the person retain his independence as much as possible (even if a caretaker needs to help them get in and out of the tub).
There are many benefits to having a shower chair in one’s bathroom. The main purpose of bath benches and shower chairs, as mentioned above, is to provide a safe and secure bathing experience for the user.
The reason why safety is repeatedly emphasized when one discusses seniors is because aside from construction workers, seniors have the highest rates of slips, trips, and falls in the country, and statistics clearly show that almost all of these inadvertent occurrences happen in the shower or bath area. Sadly, for a senior citizen or a disabled person, a fall in the bathroom can cause numerous injuries, and can sometimes even be fatal. A person’s safety is not worth risking, and therefore, a shower chair or safety seat is definitely a worthwhile investment for anyone who believes in the importance of staying safe!
