Keep in mind that your bath products must be able to adapt to your changing needs, yet must also be suitable for people of all ages. That’s where the “universal” in universal design comes in.
A spacious, curbless shower with a handshower can be a necessity for an older adult using a mobility device or needing assistance. Handshowers with slidebars are even more versatile, as they can be mounted low enough to accommodate both seated and standing users.
Consider adjustable or customizable cabinets — a vanity cabinet with a removable base or pocket doors can easily allow for a wheelchair. Cabinets and counters wall-mounted on shelf brackets can be adjusted for height or removed to add space for mobility.
Another option is a wall-mounted sink. This style works great for aging seniors, since the space can accommodate a wheelchair or other mobility device.
