What is a shower chair?

A shower chair is a chair with usually rubber feet, used to provide additional support in the bath or shower, and make it easier for the elderly, or people who have mobility issues to get in and out of the bath or shower and assist with washing themselves.

How do you bathe someone in a shower chair?

1. Place the chair in the tub or shower and ensure it is stable. 2. For extra care, it’s best to place an anti-slip mat underneath the chair itself. 3. Remove any obstructions that can topple or hurt someone. 4. Be sure the individual is sitting in the centre of the chair, and is nicely balanced and comfortable. 5. Easily bathe using a shower hose and / or cloth.

Shower Chairs

Taking a shower is something most people don’t even think twice about – it’s just a part of our daily routines. However, for those with disabilities, mobility issues, or balance issues taking a shower can be an enormous task. Taking a bath or shower is supposed to be one of the most relaxing parts of our day, but for some it can be a terrifying experience. The possibility of falling down, slipping, and ending up in the hospital is all too real. Luckily, there are a wide range of products from brands including Better Living, Etac, Peak Care, Performance Health, and R&R Healthcare Equipment that can assist with this issue. Shower chairs and shower stools are useful products that can help all types of people become completely independent when taking a bath or shower. From bath aids to grab bars, shower benches, and shower commodes there is an endless number of products that can help you improve an essential part of your daily life.

When standing up during a shower becomes difficult, a shower chair or shower stool can alleviate these challenges and offer a sense of comfort. Shower chairs for the elderly are also available. These options often have seats that can be rotated 360 degrees in either direction for a seamless experience. There are even shower seats with backrests or extra wide shower stools to accommodate for all sizes.

If you are having mobility issues that affect your ability to shower independently, then there’s also a chance that you may need toilet aids to assist with using the bathroom. These aids can raise the seat of your toilet, add armrests for more control, or even offer cushion for a more comfortable experience.

These products are useful for a large group of people including the elderly, those with mobility issues, those with short-term or long-term disabilities, and more.

· Improved Safety – For the elderly or people with disabilities, the debilitating fear of becoming injured can be eliminated. Showering is an essential part of our everyday routines that cannot be avoided, and this is why shower stools are so important.

· Better Hygiene – Trying to properly clean yourself while worried about the dangers of slipping or falling down is nearly impossible. When panicked, you want to get out of that situation as quickly as possible which leaves room for unclean areas. Having a shower chair can ease this stress and aid in better grooming practices. Without the fear of injury, one can devote their energy to properly cleaning themselves rather than rushing to get out of the shower.

· Increases Independence – When you have someone constantly helping you with such a basic need like showering, it can start to feel like you’re losing your independence. With shower seats, there are many options that can help you feel like you are regaining your power.

· Offers Support for Short- and Long-Term Disabilities – Shower stools make healing from injuries like sprained ankles, broken legs, hip replacements and more so much easier. Since these injuries require staying off the feet for a prolonged period of time, you
can follow doctors’ orders while still getting clean. Adding a shower stool to your routine will make you wonder how you ever survived without a shower chair.

For the elderly or those with physical limitations, it is not putting your health at risk. Implement a shower chair, shower bench or shower stool into your daily routine…you won’t regret it!
