Bathroom Safety

One in three seniors over the age of 65 suffer a fall every year, according to research, with 80% of these accidents happening in the bathroom. Bathroom safety can be easily created by installing essential bathroom accessories to combat slippery surfaces. Grab bars, handrails, bath lifts, transfer boards, raised toilet seats, and shower chairs can make turn a hazardous bathroom into a safe and easy space for seniors or people with physical disabilities.

Transfer Bench

Bath transfer benches are safety mobility devices that help users get into the bathtub. Patients who cannot step inside the tub can sit on the bench straddling the side of the tub. Eventually, they slide from the outside to the inside of the tub. Transfer benches are designed for patients incapable of getting over the tub wall due to injuries, illness or disabilities.

Macdonald’s Home Health Care offers a selection of quality transfer benches in Vancouver. From padded and sliding to bariatric transfer benches, we have what you need.

We understand the importance of maintaining proper hygiene and the capability of doing routines on our own. Our transfer benches are designed with style and durability to support your need for independence. We structure our benches for safety and prevention of accidents in your bathroom.

Transfer benches are excellent bathroom necessities for wheel-chaired patients. Family members can lift their loved ones from the wheelchair to one end of the bench and help them slide into the tub. With these benches, patients no longer have to climb over the tub’s edge.
