Builders and plumbers install home care showers with flexible hoses in care environments such as wet rooms where carers bathe people with injuries and disabilities or in aged care homes. In these instances, patient comfort is of paramount importance. We measure this comfort in water temperature, the type of spray, and the volume of water and so on. In family situations hand shower systems combined with wall showers provide a good option. The way it works is by means of a bathroom shower head diverter offering the user to use either the wall shower rose or the hand held shower head. In addition, installing wall hook at a lower height helps with placing the hand shower set on the wall bracket. Water diverters allow for easy switching from wall shower rose to hand held shower head. Occupational therapist consider care showers…. for patient home modification options.
Important aspects of shower heads
Important aspects of shower heads in the area of spray pattern, head size and weight especially when filled with water. For carers it is important to have handshowers that are grippy in wet conditions. In short the ergonomics of hand showers play an important role.
Home Care Showers and Shower Hoses
Shower hoses play a big role in care showers in some instances the hose need to be longer. Moreover, carers sometimes bathe patient in wheel chairs or shower seats where hose length is very important. Furthermore, builders and plumbers consider backflow prevention regulations with the use of longer shower hoses.
Shower Grab Rails for Home Care Showers
Shower grab rails and accessories play an important roll in home care shower compartments. Consequantly shower rails with a vertical grab rail will have a hand shower bracket fitted to the grab rail. In doing so the vertical grab rail serves as a height adjustable shower rail as well as a grab rail. We have to remember that disabled people have a totally different perspective of their shower compartment.Furthermore, every aid in the form of grab rails or other accessories play a much bigger role that we perceive.

Non slip floors increasingly become a point of dicussion with flooring specialists. The natural trend points in the direction of ceramic floortiles whilst the hygiene factor votes for vinyl flooring.
Wet rooms mean shower rooms that do away with the shower screen and tray, and have an open, fully tiled shower area . In Australia a wet room is typically referred to an open bathroom, where the entire room becomes the shower cubicle. The trend in architectural design is to do away with enclosed shower cubicles. The reality for most people is that your bathroom is on the small side you probably will need to include a shower screen to prevent everything getting sprayed. To have wheel chair access though means to do away with shower bases and the idea is to slope the floor to a centrally positioned drain or even a lineal drain.
Hygiene is another aspect that drives the progress and interest of wet bathrooms. Also hosing down a wet room has its hygiene benefits. This principal has been around for many years in our hospitals and makes sense to use in residential spaces.
