With their failing eyesight and weaker body coordination, aged people are prone to falling. In fact, a NewsUSA.com report noted that about 80% of these incidents occur in the bathroom. If you senior-proof a bathroom, the elderly members of your family won’t have to face this risk, according to a Washington, DC bathroom remodeling contractor from iDesign Interior Solutions. Below are the essentials of a senior-friendly bathroom:
