Falls are a very real danger for people living with Parkinson's. The mobility issues that are characteristic of the disease can make it difficult to maintain balance, making falls more likely. Bathrooms can be particularly dangerous, as they often have slick surfaces and hard edges. If you or someone you love is living with Parkinson's, there are some things that you can do to help reduce the risk of bathroom falls. First, consider mobility solutions such as grab bars or a shower bench. These can help to provide support and stability when getting in and out of the shower or using the toilet. Second, get some support from friends or family members. Having someone nearby who can offer assistance can be a huge help in preventing falls. Finally, make sure to keep the bathroom clean and free of clutter. A tidy bathroom is a safer bathroom. By taking some simple precautions, you can help to reduce the risk of falls in your home.
