Bathtub Safety Tips for Seniors and Children

Jan 12, 2024

Bathing should be a refreshing experience, but for seniors and children, it can pose unique challenges. New Bath Today understands the importance of safety in the bathroom and offers tips to ensure a secure bathing environment for your loved ones.

Safe Bathing for Seniors

Slips and falls are the number one cause of injury for seniors, and the most common place for these accidents is in the bathroom. That’s the bad news. The good news is that there are things you can do to make your bathroom safer. Consider:

  1. Installing grab bars: Place sturdy grab bars near the tub or shower to provide support while entering and exiting. This simple addition can significantly reduce the risk of slips and falls.
  2. Non-slip mats: Invest in non-slip mats both inside and outside the tub. These mats offer stability, preventing accidents due to wet surfaces.
  3. Adjust water temperature: Set the water heater to a safe temperature to avoid scalding. This is crucial for seniors who may have reduced sensitivity to hot water.
  4. Consider a walk-in tub: For added convenience, consider a walk-in tub. These tubs eliminate the need to step over a high threshold, reducing the risk of tripping.

Keeping Your Children Safe

Kids love bath time! But what should be a fun experience can turn dangerous in mere seconds if you’re not paying attention. By following a few simple precautions, you can keep your kids safe and keep bathtime a fun time. For your kids’ bath time, always:

  1. Supervise bath Time: Never leave a child unattended during bath time. Accidents can happen quickly, so constant supervision is key.
  2. Use Slip-resistant products: Choose bathmats with slip-resistant features to prevent slipping. Ensure the bathroom floor is dry before allowing children to step out of the tub.
  3. Mind water temperature: Test the water temperature before placing a child in the tub. Adjust the water heater to a child-safe temperature to avoid burns.
  4. Secure bath toys: When not in use, store bath toys in a secure container to prevent tripping hazards. Teach children to pick up toys after each bath.

At New Bath Today, we go beyond tips. Our safety-focused products, including non-slip mats, grab bars, and walk-in tubs, are designed to create a secure bathing environment for all. Prioritize your loved ones’ safety – consider our safety-enhancing products for your bathroom today.
