Different bath and shower aids in the evekare range:

What to consider before purchasing a bath aid:
- User’s needs: There are so many different kinds of bath aids on offer, our range has many different functionalities – so it is essential to assess the needs of the individual before purchasing a bath aid. Someone who is mobility restricted may not have the same needs as an elderly individual, and two elderly people may not even require the same type of assistance. The important thing is to find an aid that will allow the user to become more independent throughout their bathing routine.
- Style: As the range of bath aid products is so large at evekare, we offer many different finishes, styles, and looks for bath aids. The style of aid is especially important to consider when the bathroom that will have the aid installed is being used by people that don’t necessarily require support in the bathroom. There are many options that will allow the aid to seamlessly blend into the existing environment.
