What's Missing in This Picture?



Narration:
To reduce the risk of slipping inside the tub, use either nonskid bath mats or bath strips.

Nonskid bath mats cover more of the tub floor surface than bath strips. And they're available in colors, which can be very helpful to people with dementia. Many individuals have dementia-related depth perception problems and are afraid of either falling or drowning because they can't make out where the tub floor is. A colorful bath mat, color contrasted to the tub walls, can help the person see the bathtub floor better.
