A new bathroom will be more convenient and safer if you include features that make it easy for a bather to get into and out of a bathtub whether it’s a young jock wobbling around on crutches from a sports injury or an elder struggling with arthritis. Even furnishings play a part in creating a comfortable and accessible home. Get rid of things that hurt you.

Remove obstacles in and around the house and prevent accidents from happening.
