The popular phrase “lucky we live Hawaii” is perfectly accurate when considering the islands’ clean air, delicious water and ideal weather conditions. Hawaii is definitely one of the safest places to live and yes, the “aloha spirit” is alive and well. In addition to these benefits, people are living longer for various reasons, such as having more information on how to be healthy and more seniors exercising.

While these things are important, there are other topics seniors should be proactive about, including home safety. What most people don’t realize is that 68% of all seniors are injured while in the bathroom and 82% of the time it happens right at home.


As people get older, getting in and out of a bathtub is not just harder, it’s dangerous. Seniors should be proactive and shouldn’t wait until they are injured to solve the problems created by a fall, stroke or other health issues. Here are a few reasons to be proactive:

• Anything done in construction costs more, and even more so if done in a hurry.

• Being proactive may prevent a fall or injury. Taking the right precautions adds quality years to your life and can save money.


• In an instant, your quality of life can reduce suddenly.

• Unnecessary stress can enter and affect lives among family members.

There are endless reasons to obtain a safe and comfortable bathroom and home. Get started on that project that you have been putting off for years. The best company to call is Tropical Wholesale.
