Accessible showers should be part of any aging in place bathroom remodeling project, due to the fact they can be built to be accessible for anyone; including those who are in a wheelchair. These showers are designed to not only provide for a person’s safety in the shower through no or low-lip entries, grab bars, non-slip flooring, etc.
A bathroom that is designed properly & fully will incorporate these and other features, through the use of Universal Design or accessible design principles, hardware and materials. This combination will help create a safe showering experience for people of all abilities & ages.
