year and 60% occur in the bathroom?  So we should not be surprised to learn that the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development reported that the top 11 home improvements most often installed in a senior’s home include:

 

1.      Grab bars in bathrooms

2.      Grab bars in showers

3.      Movable shower heads for those who sit

4.      Portable shower seats

5.      Full bathroom and bedroom on 1st floor

6.      Levered doorknobs

7.      Levered faucets in kitchen sink

8.      Handrails on both sides of stairwells and on front & rear steps

9.      Widened doors to accommodate wheelchairs

10.   Ramps for those using walkers and wheelchairs

11.   Removal of any door threshold
