When You Leave The Hospital, Make Sure Your Bathroom Is Ready

It’s nice to hear the words “you can go home” after a hospital stay.

However, if your physical demands have altered, it’s critical that you remain secure and comfortable at home. Before coming home, you may want to reorganise your belongings or make modifications. We’re used to building bathrooms for folks returning home from the hospital at AHM Installations.

Last year, one of our clients, Mr. Simpson, 86, was admitted to the hospital with Covid-19. He also suffered pneumonia, a superbug, and a stroke, and he spent seven weeks in the hospital. Mrs Simpson, 82, added, “There was a lot of praying.”

Mr Simpson was supposed to get a low-level shower fitted, but when he was ready to leave the hospital, his carers informed him that the new shower tray would not function. A wet area was required to ensure that the new wheelchair could manoeuvre into and around the restroom.

“Every time I contacted Nichola (at AHM) to tell her what was going on, she was really polite about it,” Mrs Simpson added. She was unbelievably composed and accommodating. I was completely at ease the entire time.”

Preparing For Your New Bathroom

Here’s how to prepare your bathroom for when you return:

  • Pay attention to the advice of specialists. A doctor, nurse, or occupational therapist may advise you on which tasks you require assistance with. We’ll need to know the size of your walking frame or wheelchair, for example, if you need to get around.
  • It’s critical to understand the distinction between independent and assisted bathing. If you want to stay independent, we’ll need to know if you can sit and stand without assistance, as well as how your mobility is expected to develop over time. If you’ll be assisted by a caregiver, bath lifts, for example, may be necessary.
  • Seek the assistance of a family member or a close friend. Make the decision-making process less stressful by involving someone you can trust. Make sure they know ahead of time whether the toilet or tile design is important to you.

  • Use the services of a reputable bathroom remodelling firm. Some businesses only offer bathroom items and don’t take the time to learn about your preferences and requirements. The quality of life is a top priority for AHM. It doesn’t matter whether you have a product if it doesn’t make your life easier or safer.

Over the last 20 years, AHM has built thousands of accessible bathrooms, so we know how to make restrooms safe and appealing no matter what your budget is. In our perspective, everyone should be able to bathe safely and affordably.
