These practical, hands-on workshops look at bathroom safety and ergonomics for users and their caregivers with different levels of need from independent to dependent. We look at why should we use assistive devices in the bathroom, what assistive devices can be used in the bath, shower and toilet. Also a look at transferring into and within the bathroom.
