Yes, the topic of raised toilet seats may not be a particularly popular thing to write about, but, from one who cared for an elderly Mom for 5 years, it’s a topic well worth sharing.
MY STORY, AND I’M STICKING TO IT -
When my 90 year old Mom, Gertie, moved in with me after my darling Dad’s death, I had no idea how to properly care for her. But, boy, I sure did learn fast! And, one of the things I learned quickly was that life gets hard to live as we age.
My Mom used to say that getting old was not for the faint of heart. As we age, it becomes difficult to do everyday things – a spoonful of soup rarely hits the target (unless the target is one’s lap), print in books magically gets smaller, and it becomes much more difficult to sit down or rise from a favorite spot, which, sometimes, by sheer necessity, is the toilet!
That’s why I wanted to share the topic of raised toilet seats. These toilet seat risers make the toilet from 2 to 8 inches taller so it’s much easier to sit and stand up from the pot. In fact, I wish someone had told me about these when I was recovering from knee surgery – it sure would have made life more pleasant.
So, come with me and let me introduce you to the world of raised toilet seats. You might just have a senior citizen loved one who could benefit from your newfound knowledge.
