......Any Home Depot or hardware store will hav a section with some really good safety devices for our loved ones ...........Not to sure if States is the same as here but we can have the equipment covered by the Gov., For the tub they have the grip bars and chairs that will fit right onto the tub so person can sit and be bathed or showered..........and they are very easy to well there is another type of grip bar you put on the side of tub so the person is able to feel more independent and help themselves get out of basically you have grips on each side of tub.......If your loved one is in a w/c and they have a tendency to get out and fall there is a table top that can fit onto the chair and will do up with velcro.This is not considered a restraint as long as your loved one is able with determination LOL to get it undone.Posy bars are really good as well and keeps Mom o Dad from falling out.One thing to keep in mind when they are in w/c is to have a good pillow for them to sit on and if in depends to keep them dry as possible to limit the decubiti ulcers that start so easy on the elderly and are so hard to contain and get rid of ..........If anyone else has suggestions please post.Hope all have a great Easter and the Easter Bunny is good to ya .....Take Care and God Bless
