How long have you lived in your current home? 10, 20, 30 or maybe even 40 years? More and more senior citizens are deciding to "age in place" every year. A recent study shows that 87% of people want to stay in their current home as the age.
If you’ve lived in your home for more than a decade or so, odds are, high-value rooms in your home (such as the master bathroom) need to be renovated to increase its value. In this blog, we’ll discuss the importance of implementing safety features in your home, in addition to updating the aesthetics.
A Safe Bathroom
A bathroom that isn’t modified to suit someone with decreased strength and mobility is an extremely dangerous space. Features such as grab bars, Zero-threshold showers, walk-in tubs and raised toilet seats are all excellent additions that can help prevent a major life-threatening fall from occurring.
Bell House Medical has a passion for making bathrooms a safe place for everyday life. The reason behind that is 80% of senior citizen falls occur in the bathroom. Every bathroom we enhance, is another potentially devastating fall avoided.
We can all agree that making your bathroom safer is the most important thing we do. But there are many benefits to updating the aesthetics of your bathroom as well. According to multiple sources, the master bathroom is a top 3 space in your home that needs to be up-to-date. Bell House Medical can install new:

All of these things will provide a more luxurious bathroom experience; enhancing your mood, increasing the value of your home and establishing an exciting element to your routine. Having the same exact routine for years and years without any changes can actually have a negative effect on the mind. An exciting event like having a brand-new bathroom installed can stimulate you mentally and result in a positive long-term outcome (healthy mind/awareness).
