Q. I am remodeling my bathroom and need suggestions as to how to make it senior-friendly, since I hope to stay in my home.
You are very wise to be considering this now, while you are still healthy and hardy.
If you have a stall shower, have the lip at the entrance made as low as possible to facilitate an easy entrance. Have a hand-held shower nozzle installed. Be sure there is enough room in the shower to allow for a shower chair.
When selecting a toilet, opt for a "comfort-height" one. It will be easier to use should you develop knee or hip problems. A taller vanity or sink will reduce the amount of bending necessary to brush your teeth, and thus be easier on your back.
