Episode Description:

When is the best time to ready your bathroom to maximize your personal safety? Are you saying 'oh, it's worked for me so far, so why change now'? If that's you or someone you know, then you are in the group of people waiting for an accident to happen that will uproot your life. You will be part of a special club that gets to dine in the hospital and be waited on by doctors and nurses. Lucky you.

Part 2 of our bathroom safety series focuses on the bathtub and commode. Our Certified Aging in Place Specialist, Brad Wert shows off the affordable and available devices that make entering, using, and exiting a bathtub safe and comfortable. We then spend some time on the toilet (so to speak). Brad shows us the value of raised toilet seats and handy attachable devices that greatly reduce unwanted accidents.

We close out this show with some sage words of advice from University of Michigan Professor Susan Murphy. Professor Murphy explains how to design an effective personal bathroom safety plan for yourself and those you love.
