Handheld shower heads
For your safety and comfort, try washing with a handheld shower head that you can use while sitting or standing. Handheld showers are available with different features, and you can choose a hose length that meets your needs. For a custom shower that's comfortable and effective for you, try a handheld shower head from brands such as Moen, Medline or Drive Medical that offers settings to control water flow.
Besides being able to control your water flow settings, you can customize your total shower and bathroom to make it safe and comfortable for you to use each day. Find the bathroom safety products that you can depend on, whether you could use a simple grab bar on the shower wall or a shower stool made with a holder for your handheld shower head. Using a non-slip bath mat on your tub or shower floor can help make showering and bathing safer and simpler.
