As we get older we become more wobbly, in fact my son calls us Wobblers and he is correct because most of us lose our sense of balance. Mine started in my 60's and gets worse every year. With that in mind, I started buying chrome grab bars at yard sales. I put up one in the bathtub/shower unit, another on the wall by the toilet, and one on the bathroom door. I have trouble keeping my balance with my eyes closed when I shampoo my hair in the shower so I hook my elbow behind the grab bar to keep me steady. I put one by the toilet to assist in rising. The one on the bathroom door is for me to hang onto while trying to work out a leg cramp at night. Another thing was our miserable little toilets that were low and seldom flushed the first time. I bought American Standard high toilets and replaced the old ones. American Standard has re-engineered their toilets and their lab tests confirm that they will flush 29 golf balls with 1.2 gallons of water, that's a bucket of golf balls! Now we have toilets that are easier to get off of and flush the first time every time. Then I bought a bunch of soft corners in the baby department of WalMart and cemented them on to all the sharp corners around the house. In an earlier post, I mentioned that I had replaced most of the soft white light bulbs around the hose with 5000K (bright white) LED bulbs. The bright white is like sunlight, a spectrum that we can see better in than warm white (3000K). Outside, I built a ramp for our scooters so we could get them up on the deck and into the house. Ours is a fairly steep ramp, just fine for scooters but far too short and steep for wheelchairs. That would require a much more elaborate ramp system.
