Bathroom: Adaptations for the blind and partially sighted

  1. Accidents happen regularly in the bathroom, especially among the elderly. But there are also many possible obstacles in the bathroom for visually impaired and blind people, which can cause accidents more quickly. A safe, uncluttered bathroom minimizes the risk of these accidents and ensures more efficient personal hygiene. These adjustments certainly do not have to be expensive. Good contrast and texture changes are especially important for people with a visual impairment.

Contrast for the partially sighted

  1. Visual contrast is important for the visually impaired to clearly separate surfaces and articles. Many people with poor eyesight are not always able to distinguish colors, but visual contrast is often visible. Articles with solid colors are also more distinguishable for many visually impaired people than articles with patterns. However, variations are possible, because not every visually impaired person has the same preferences, not even with the same eye condition

Articles in the bathroom

  1. Fixed location

Bath or shower

  1. Anti-slip mat It is best to place a non-slip mat or a rug with relief in the bath or shower. It is best to opt for a contrasting color that stands out from the bottom. Choosing colors in the store can be done with the help of a color detector

Personal Care

  1. Nails Cutting the nails can be done with a nail clipper for some visually impaired people, but for others this is difficult. A file can offer a solution. Scissors are not recommended. Visually impaired or blind people with diabetes mellitus

Toilet

  1. A good contrast in the bathroom also means that you should replace the white toilet seat with a dark, contrasting color. Some visually impaired people, especially the elderly, require a grab bar next to the toilet and / or a raised attachment to make sitting and getting up easier. When you choose these handles in a bright, well-contrasting color, they stand out more easily.
