Accessible Shower Arrangement

Wooden bench and metal grab bars with a corner rack for shower essentials

There are a ton of accessible bathroom tips in this photo to share! Like other pictures, this shows lowered shelving so that items can be reached from a seated position. But it also includes a modification: a wall mounted shower bench. This is mounted properly to support someone’s body weight. Instead of a shower chair that can be taken in and out of the shower, this shower bench is stationary.

What’s also here are grab bars, both horizontal and vertical, and a handheld shower head. Though the shower head is just out of view, this is a key way to make a shower accessible because it gives the person control over where the water goes.
